Yahoo Mail is Censoring Emails About #OccupyWallStreet (UPDATE: Yahoo responds)

Any time you try to send an email from Yahoo Mail with the text string “occupywallst.org” in it, it will be blocked from being sent due to “suspicious activity”.

What.

I first heard about this from this post, and as you can see in the video, I can confirm that it is, indeed, happening. David, our Chief Operating Plankhead, also confirms that this is happening from his Yahoo account.

UPDATE: Another good example courtesy of slybster. This one’s a bit clearer:

UPDATE 9/20 2:56 PM EST: @Yahoo tweeted:

Thanks to @YahooMail users & @ThinkProgress for catching problem w/ #Occupywallst.org mail. Prob is fixed, but there may be residual delays.

I figured it would end up being explained as a bug. But that’s a really weird bug. I think we need more of an explanation, Yahoo.

        Fortunately, my Yahoo account isn’t my primary email address at all. It’s something I happened to have lying around, so I decided to test it.

        And I’ve done plenty of things that would be more likely to get me flagged by a government agency than typing a little bit of text into an email, so I wouldn’t worry any more about that.
