  • Shocked!!!

    When I looked at your headline, I thought Yahoo! also acquired WordPress :D

  • TheKage

    Same as above, thought Yahoo has acquired WordPress. Gave me a fright.

  • Octal

    Yeah I thought “Wow! Yahoo has gone on a spending spree!”

  • malikyte

    Ha! Me too. Changing the order of the list might help (WordPress 2.3, Yahoo Acquires Zimbra, and more)

  • ikeo

    Yeah please change the title of the post … I almost crapped on myself when I thought Yahoo had bought wordpress.

  • cranial-bore

    I’m another who thought that the title was Yahoo’s recent shopping list, which included Zimbra, WP and more
