What is interesting is how Yahoo lists all the Anti-War groups and their information incase folks want to get more information on Anti-War organizations. Where are the Lists of folks who are Supporting our President and Our Troops?
Well at least you have the information so you can start Freeping these no-mind Communist Organizations. Or should I say Anti-American Organizations. Or should I just say Communist Organizations??-

You actually have to type in pro-war instead of rally america to get any pictures. Now we KNOW that there were dozens of pro-America rallies this week-end and they don't have but a few pictures of them.
Yahoo message boards are a playground for commis and hate groups (I know, I ran screaming from them). I think making pro America links readily available there will just be giving those 24 hour a day fools targets. There will be nonstop denial of service attacks, spamming to the emails, and if anything had dates of events....who knows.
I know the information needs to be out there for people that really want to support their country; but, I wouldn't go and hang a pro American event sign at a commi convention.

Sorry I thought I had them, then I lost them. The Point was Yahoo is offering these to folks, I did not do a search. why aren't they ofering the same for pro-America web sites?
Sorry I didn't mean links to each anti-war sites but links to the Yahoo listings that you are speaking of.

I was on the YAHOO Main Page. I looked at the stories on the right where all the headlines are to choose from.
I clicked on the title "Worldwide Anti-war Protests Continue over the week-end"
After I read the article I scrolled down to the end of the page and there they were.
>>>The Point was Yahoo is offering these to folks, I did not do a search. why aren't they ofering the same for pro-America web sites?
Hah! Marketing my fair friend! You market to your target audience. Who is your target audience? Where the traffic comes from. How can you tell where the traffice comes from? Monitoring the news message boards, Yahoo Groups, and the data collected from when you sign up from a your account information.
I know, I did market research for an international company for 10 years before I settled in to my homebased business with my 3 kids. I collect data on the Net too for my target marketing.
Scroll through those Yahoo News Boards. Take note of the posters and their messages. Take note of the Groups. That is why you see more Anti-War messaging versus Patriotic.
Piece of advice too. If you opt to try to post there and you have Yahoo Messenger, make sure the messenger is turned off first. That creates a 'server'. There is some piece of software or code I'm not too familiar with that allows hackers to access your computer through messenger. I've seen it done, I've had it done; but I don't understand it enought to explain it.

Several years ago, I used Yahoo to navigate to certain religious websites that I frequented. At that time time a statistic circulated that claimed that visits to religious websites accounted for the most web traffic next to visits to porn. Suddenly, Yahoo reorganized their search engine. Afterwards, the orthodox religious websites took a clear backseat to spiritual websites that I can only assume generated a profit. Its not a sin to make a profit, and Yahoo is a for profit organization.
