Florian Reichling reports that her Yahoo! account went offline and can't be restored, ever, after using the bulk upload feature.her account displayed a message:
The account sempunch.com [my account number] is not displaying ads as of 2/5/07 2:04 PM. This may be because the account has reached its daily spending limit, its balance has been depleted, or your company’s account administrator has set the account status to off. But none of this had happened.
After she contacted Yahoo!, she was redirected to the tech guys. Whatever. the bottom line is the update she posted:
UPDATE: I was just told that my account cannot be brought back online and is lost – so be careful about using the bulk upload tool!
Now, that is not the wonderful user review that Yahoo! would have liked for their newly launched Panama. Florian reached her conclusion by saying:
No wonder Google dominates this market – their #1 competitor in the space is utterly incompetent.
Yahoo! has to get its act in place before many others think the same.
