Yahoo! censoring open source to buddy up to Microsoft? Not likely

That's what the post says. i don't believe it

Slated is suggesting that Yahoo! is censoring out open source on its Answers service. Apparently some suggestions that people try Ubuntu, among other things, have been marked as a "violation of...Community Guidelines or Terms of Service."

This has, as you'd expect, kicked up a small furor of conspiracy theory (Yahoo! is playing nice to Microsoft in anticipation of a merger) and silliness.

Could it be instead that someone made a mistake?
