Yahoo Accused of Censoring Occupy Wall Street Emails

Kurt Nimmo

The effectiveness of the Occupy Wall Street protests is being blunted by the internet corporation Yahoo, according to activists.

According to a pair of videos posted on YouTube, the company intentionally blocked emails that included “,” the main website of the effort to shut down New York’s financial district organized by a shadowy group of hackers known as Anonymous.

“Your message was not sent. Suspicious activity has been detected on your account. To protect your account and our users, your message has not been sent. If this error continues, please contact Yahoo! Customer Care for further help. We apologize for the inconvenience,” a message states after emails are sent via Yahoo.

The videos show users successfully sending emails with different addresses.

Yahoo claims the error messages were “unintentional” and caused by spam filters.

Yahoo is notorious for helping the authoritarian government of China build its censorship firewall, known as the Great Firewall of China.

China’s government aggressively seeks out and imprisons activist bloggers. In 2001, activists were arrested and sentenced to ten year prison terms for using Yahoo accounts to send email. Activists subsequently sued Yahoo for its effort to block emails targeted by the Chinese government.

Yahoo, YouTube, Google, MySpace, and ISPs have been accused of blocking and censoring activist email, websites, and videos for years. posted a page of links to articles documenting the effort by corporations and the establishment to prevent activists from using the internet.

On Tuesday, Anonymous accused the New York Police of attempting to shut down its media operation during a violent raid.

“2 members of #OccupyWallStreet media team & another person arrested for trying to use a tarp to protect communications equipment from rain,” an AnonOps tweet reads. The group claims police confiscated some of the media team’s equipment.

A video of the arrests was posted on YouTube:

Yes, I can testify to that. I tried to send myself an email with political content and the same message appeared on the screen that my email wasn´t sent because of too many names in the To field although there was just one name in the To field. For verification I sent myself another test-email with a different content just to see if it goes through, and it did. It is irrefutable that Yahoo is actively censoring all the emails with undesirable political content and they blame this on the "anti spam filters" Anti-spam my ass, Yahoo!!!! You can go straight to the Communist Hell, you vile despots!!!! Yahoo, you make me puke!!!!
