"Manage interest-based advertising categories, or opt-out of all categories, from Yahoo"
sneaky buggers! and YET... they apparently do give you an OPT out option...?
Yahoo!7 offers you the choice to opt out of receiving interest-based content and advertising. If you opt out, your information will not be appended to or matched with third parties for the purposes described above, and you will no longer receive interest-based content or advertising. Additionally, if you opt out, information about your visits to our partner websites will not used to provide reporting to partners using Yahoo!7’s analytics product.
i just did that. see what happens now i guess!?
* analytics seems to be the most vague settings. still looking into it.
Are currently off.
To make your opt out apply to every computer you use, sign in to your Yahoo!7 account and choose persistent opt-out. Learn more.
when i click on OPT OUT it gives me this!

yeah right! and ..
after that there are HEAPS and heaps of different opt out options chockers with info about why they have them and how much you want them, based on info collected by yahoo which they share around!
of course! and you have to click on ALL of them after the one which said you opted out of everything.
really? apparently not.
they sure make it hard for you to opt out!
more work to be done! sheesh!!
