    Title says it all, but I can explain.

    Rares were banned accounts on Yahoo in 1999 or 1998. Any account with symbols, double underscores, caps lock, etc...

    I know it the early 2000s it was a pretty good way to make money online. I wonder if any old school guys here used to do that. I myself had a couple hundred rares but never sold it. And now they are worthless.

    I never messed with Yahoo, but I met some dude's who did one time. I also knew a bunch of ppl who did similar stuff on AOL/AIM as well. Some of them nerd's still do actually. Lol.

    I used to collect yahoo rares and brag them in chat rooms, good days! LoL! But most of them were gone now because i haven't used them for many years. I was also in trading sites where you need to get vouched in order to be activated. Do you still own yahoo rares?

    That is awesome. Everybody had a little trick. I remember cracking a cute account for my sister and then getting scammed on the side by somebody else. I got so pissed off for losing the account but then I was like, well I took it from somebody else anyways.

    But now they closed Yahoo's lounge games, so are you guys only using it for email? Or is there any other way to show them off in games?
