Yahoo mail frustration, they shouldn't be linking my name

Home More advice Computers & Tech

So yahoo mail has these clever "smart tips" they like to auto hyperlink based on words in your email now. However, my last name (Goodrich) is incredibly common, and a fortune 500 company (Goodrich Corp). I'm royally irritated that they now have a pop up when I mouse over my name in an email address.

As my family has been in the USA for nearly 340 years (I have a family tree & can prove it, etc) it's quite frustrating. Almost, but not quite, the same as auto linking "Smith" or "Jones". Do you feel Yahoo's interference with your email goes too far?
