Writing sites need to use a secure HTTPS protocol to help against hackes at user passwords.
In 2012 Yahoo! Voices was hacked.
IN an article written by Wikipedia there is reason to blame a breach in security as they did not employ the HTTPS secure protocol.
I figured this might have been the case. The Yahoo! Voices site was a good one. Through no fault of their own, the people who wrote there honestly had no idea that HTTPS would keep them from being hacked, well, not as easily, but then there were new types of hacks taking place at that time, infiltrating websites and writing sites and basically everyone who wrote for or had a Yahoo account were targets of this hack. HTTPS is encryption. The hackers today are clever so it's not good to run any writing site that does not use the HTTP (S) - Secured protocol.
The thing is, some writing sites still don't use https. And that is something to be concerned about.
