i just learned of a new security feature that yahoo is putting in place. A Sign In Seal. basically it is a image that is unique to the computer and the computer owner that will show when a person goes to the sign in page. if that seal is not there then it will raise a red flag to a possible fraud site.\ \ here is a link to yahoo page on this feature\ https://protect.login.yahoo.com/\ \ i think this would be a GREAT feature to add in a future update

Nothing fancy , it is still using cookies to recognize computers, anyone can view/delete cookies on any PC. In general, there is nothing in the world you can recoginze users computers other than Cookies or installing some activex or software.

i know it is still using cookies and many people do delete them but i think it will help ease the mind of already registered users and new visitors knowing this little auction site is taking steps to help combat phishing attempts.\ \ if this or anything like it doesn't get added then its alright. there are other ways to help cut down on fraud.\ education is the biggest way in my honest opinion
