Can't log into to my yahoo account?

For some very strange reason, I can't log into my account which I've had for years and have lots of important things tied to. It says it cannot recognize the same device I've always used to log on. So it then asks me to answer a ridiculous security question I never once set (nickname of a child), I don't have a child. It also suggests I send information to a defunct account at Lycos I also can no longer get into?

What I don't get is WHY it "doesn't recognize the device I'm using to log on" with THAT account, but somehow it remembers with this alternate account I'm using right now!!! How stupid.

Is anyone else having this log on issue right now? Should I try to wait it out? Or did it finally decided to screw me out of my account?

    I am having the same issue. I've been locked out my account for the better part of three weeks. I had to create a new account. Unfortunately even calling the help number doesn't do anything. It appears yahoo is trying to lose people and screw us all.

    If you get a good answer please come back and share.
