Yahoo! Mail just announced that they are blocking users who have ad blockers turned on, from accessing their email. One customer summarized it this way: “And they say @Yahoo can’t innovate? They came up with a very innovative way of driving people away from Yahoo Mail.”

In fact, Harvard Medical School published an article mentioning several studies that show how simply expressing gratitude can increase personal happiness, improve relationships, and motivate employees.
Pretty impressive for two little words.
