Why would you equate 'I cannot assert it exists' with 'I can definitely assert it does not exist'. Do you not understand that these are different?
I do. You obviously don't. Your words are supporting a default position of disbelief. That is asserting it does not exist, not asserting you don't have an opinion on the matter.
As to why we should disbelieve, it's simple.
Ah, so in the absence of evidence, you assert it does not exist, in direct contradiction to your earlier lies.
The source of the news is untrustworthy,
So you disbelieve Uber's position that she's not full of lies? Why do you think Uber is so full of lies?
It's not just on the source, but the actions of others. She made quite factual assertions about specific facts. If she's lying, she'll be sued to oblivion. If she's not, she (and Uber) will have documents to support claims. She made a complaint to HR on her first day. You think that's a lie. You are positively definitely asserting it does not exist. The "scientific" response is, a single observation of a single event doesn't make a rule. The generalization of her complaint to all startups is invalid. The generalizatoin of her complaint to all women or men within Uber would be invalid.
But simply disbelieving her because you find complaints of sexism to be inconvenient is scientifically invalid.
You are entitled to your opinion, but don't lie about science to justify it.

But I am confused about why people care if the account is open.
They had the account for years. It has some personal or sensitive data in it. Yahoo keeps getting haked. So delete the account and keep your data safe (by losing it forever). Except you can't keep the data out of the hands of the hackers. By design.
Do you have a better idea now of why someone would want an account on an insecure provider more secure?
