Easy to Love

Or so some were led to believe:

An Oregon woman has filed a $3 million lawsuit against Yahoo!, alleging the Internet site failed to follow through on a promise to remove naked pictures of her from the Web.

Cecilia Barnes, 48, in her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Multnomah County, claims an ex-boyfriend started posting "unauthorized profiles" of her in December that included revealing photos. The profiles also included her e-mail address and work phone number.

Moreover, the former boyfriend engaged in online discussions in Yahoo! chat rooms, posing as Barnes and directing men to the profiles, the suit claims.

"Due to these profiles and online chats, unknown men would arrive without warning at plaintiff's work expecting to engage in sexual relations with her," the suit says.
