anything left to rot, with no maintenance, will surprisingly.......turn to rot .
Yahoo failed to maintain their site, and not surprisingly , it turned into a trash heap.

For the umpteenth time: Because Verizon Media is choosing to shut it down (just as they did Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Groups). No specific explanation was given, but considering the significant decline in quality of content on the site versus the cost of cleaning it up and keeping it running, it's not a surprise (a disappointment, but not a surprise). Do you really think this question hasn’t been asked dozens of times already? One need only review the question list to find the responses
Yes, I'll miss it (to a degree).

..imo only.....It is a PRIVATE BUSINESS who has made a decision after much deliberation I am sure.
New laws are coming out that will hold social media sites responsible ( libel) to clean up what is posted ( racism. slander, abuse ,porn etc...FAST or face fines = $$$$$$$$$$$
