Is Yahoo! recording IP addresses now? It looks so, somehow this all comes near to the new rules now associated with Chat Room name bans being lifted pretty soon when Yahoo! feels it's time to bring back the service.
If anyone knows anything more about this or anything dealing with Yahoo! 's new IP notice, please post it. I would really like to know.

No there not recording them for SpammerS or Pervs haha thats funny you think that...but if you reg go into chat rooms you will notice people being booted or attacked...Yahoo was Hacked 6 months ago... and all there servers were crashed and basically destroyed over all... but FYI Yahoo CAN NOT record peoples IP's unless they have your permission...its a law of the Internet Section 139.62 that was passed by President Clinton...if yahoo really did record your activity they can be sued for Millions and would lose everything... But as for my self I think Yahoo is a Joke and should update there Security

Websites can record IPs, place cookies, there's no U.S. law on that. But there is a regulation stating U.S. goverrnment websites can't track users, which I believe does date to Bill Clinton. The only cookies allowed on U.S. government sites are for the purposes of counting visits.
