This section of my site is removed as a protest of new Terms of Service that Yahoo! have added to Geocities after their merger:

8. CONTENT SUBMITTED TO YAHOO

By submitting Content to any Yahoo property, you automatically grant,or warrant that the owner of such Content has expressly granted, Yahoo the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such Content (in whole or part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed.

I am a writer. I try to earn a living off my writings. Yahoo! has no right to usurp my intellectual property and taking potential money out of my pocket.

My stories will very shortly be hosted on another site that doesn't try to steal my words, until Yahoo! removes this offending policy from their service.

I joined Geocities when it was a community. Yahoo!s actions have spit in the face of that idea. It's up to them to fix it.
