Yahoo should provide users' information to US Government. It's important to tracking down illegal activity of terrorists and drug cartel. We need safer world for peoples. I don't mind if the Yahoo transfers my a/c information to any legitimate Government for security of society.

Yahoo and others services providers are listening to minority group like civil right but they are ignoring to majority peoples. Civil right, Human right and Green groups are taken less responsible or taken no responsible when the disaster was striking to society.

Yahoo should provide information what US Government wanted. Prevention is better than cure. Religion extremism terrorists can strike anytime anywhere. If Government knew in advance and then the Law enforcement organization can prevent attack on innocent peace loving peoples.

In 1984, I lived in a place that was just like the novel (doublethink etc). America was a distant paradise where people didn't have to fear their government. Less than 30 years later, an American citizen who was doing a job not unlike Winston in 1984, has to flee to Russia, of all places, because he said "this is not right". How times change...
