I find it fairly unclear which parts of Yahoo have gone to Verizon and which have stayed with Yahoo. Articles tend to talk about Verizon acquiring "Yahoo's core internet business" but, as far as I am aware, all Yahoos business is based around the internet. Will hosting phpBB bulletin boards go to Verizon or stay with Yahoo? If it does move, will Verizon make a better job of it? Will Carol relocate the forum to a different hosting site? I have no idea. Recently the Yahoo logo disappeared from my bookmark for a time, which made me think a change of some sort had occurred, but now it has returned. What that might signify I also have no idea.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti Yahoo. I think their search engine is sometimes orders of magnitude better than Google now but they certainly did a pretty poor job of resolving problems with the forum and the security of their email service is execrable.
