Comment Isn't "deleting" your account an even scarier secu (Score 1) 101

Do they actually delete the account and black list the user name? So no one else could use it? I got the impression they just delete your data, but if I were to come by and try to take your username I could. What if there was some sensitive info still being sent to your yahoo account?

I'm not a libertarian, but at least in the US I believe they hate the idea of corporate personhood as much as anyone else. I'm fairly sure Ron Paul (outspoken libertarian and republican representative from Texas) is against corporate personhood.

The first hit of a google search for "ron paul corporate personhood" turns up a blog with this video

It's concerning how unpopular this idea is and yet it still remains policy. Is it political suicide to speak out against corporate personhood, or would a law limiting personhood to individual citizens be unconstitutional?
