Just because you can, Yahoo Email, doesn't mean you should

One of the perks of Amazon Prime is that you get a free Kindle book download each month. I recently chose American Princess: The Many Lives of Allene Tew for my April selection and this is what happened when Amazon sent the email order acknowledgement:

Specifically, this part where apparently Yahoo decided to get into the act:

Overpay? Moi?

This also popped up on another recent order and I sort of hoped it was a one-time thing. Unfortunately, it looks like it may be an ongoing thing. It's also annoying as hell. Hopefully it will go away at some point. Please go away.

And this isn't even getting into the part where apparently Yahoo is scouring our emails looking for our online orders. It's almost like giant internet companies don't respect or care about our privacy!
