    Yahoo Inc. has decided to close hundreds of chat rooms operating on its site after a media report revealed that some of the rooms were used to promote sex with minors. Yahoo Inc. made the decision under pressure from several of its sponsors.

    According to the Associated Press, PepsiCo Inc., State Farm Insurance and Georgia-Pacific Corp. stopped advertising on Yahoo after they were informed that adults were attempting to lure children into sexual encounters within some of Yahoo's user-created chat rooms.

    Chatrooms are for n00bs. Forums are where it's at.

    That's because our forums are actually moderated and aren't infested with weirdoes.
