Case No. 16-md-02752-lhk,
"Yahoo! Inc. Customer Data Security Breach Litigation",
United States District Court Northern District of California
San Jose Division,
Lucy H. Koh, United States District Judge.


Dear Honorable Judge Lucy H. Koh,

Mainly with the purpose of excluding
       in the third round of directing the Best Notices
          to putative Settlement Class Members WORLDWIDE
the deficiencies having been discovered
    by HEBREWs of an Extension of the Association SMF2+
    which preserved, after leaving Yahoo and migrating
               to other providers of Internet services
            or after refusing in general
                              from using Internet services
            because of the insufficient technical support
                               or the Yahoo Data Breaches,
            but still remaining the passive holders
                 of Yahoo account and Yahoo mailbox
                 not being visited regularly, naturally, -
       an occasion to check their yahoo account mailboxes
      and which were happy to check their Yahoo mailbox
      between the event of sending by Yahoo to its client,
           an account holder and the Yahoo mailbox holder,
      {
       from the e-mail address yahoo@communications.yahoo.com
            the Notice of Data Breach
                in a form of the e-mail message
                   with the title "NOTICE OF DATA BREACH"
                or in a form of the e-mail message
                                in Russian language
                   with the title "УВЕДОМЛЕНИЕ О КРАЖЕ ДАННЫХ"
            particularly in 2016,

       or from the e-mail address of Yahoo info@service.comms.yahoo.net
          the e-mail message with subject
              "Yahoo Security Breach Proposed Settlement"
              which, for those who understands the language well,
              is not a ~Notice of Data Breach~
                     regardless of the words "this notice"
                     hidden in the brackets within the definition
                     of the term "Defendants" in the body of the message,
          in the first round of testing the Notice Program
                             related to the Agreement 369-2
                 (since September 3, 2019 till September 30, 20190),

          or the e-mail message with subject
                 "Yahoo Security Breach Proposed Settlement"
             in a form of a reminder of the Yahoo Data Breach Settlement,
                            which is also not a ~Notice of Data Breach~,
             in the second round of testing the Notice Program
                                 related to the Agreement 369-2
                 (since January 27, 2020 till February 9, 2020)
      }
      and the event of deleting by Yahoo the content of the mailbox
          together with possible NOTICE OF DATA BREACH
          and/or messages "Yahoo Security Breach Proposed Settlement"
          at the moment of logging into the Yahoo account
          under the pretext that the client was not active
                                     during a year or more,
          i.e. because the client was passive holder of the mailbox,

    and by HEBREWs which did not (could not) leave Yahoo
                             after the Yahoo Data Breaches
              and were and are using the Yahoo mailing service
        but who got only a reminder of the Yahoo Data Breach Settlement
                           (which is not a ~Notice of Data Breach~
                                  in terms of the Agreement 369-2)
                from the second round of testing the Notice Program
            while did not receive any ~Notice of Data Breach~
                  before the second round of testing the Notice Program,

    altogether having not received a ~Notice of Data Breach~
               from the e-mail address of the Settlement Administrator
                        in relation to the UPDATED SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT
                    and from the e-mail address of the Court,

    though having received at least something
                            due to the initiative of Yahoo
           that allowed them directly or indirectly, sooner or later,
                to reach the Settlement Website
                and to interpret the public information presented there
                as the identification of them (or an attempt to identify)
                       by the Settlement Administrator
                       as the Settlement Class Member in one cases
                    or as the Settlement Class Member
                              resident in the United States of America
                                              in another cases
                    or as the Settlement Class Member
                              resident in the Israel in third cases,

    and by HEBREWs which did receive the Notice of the Yahoo Data Breaches
        in a form of the Notice of Yahoo Data Breach Class Action Settlement
        in accordance with the Long Form Notice related to the Agreement 369-2,
        incoming from the no matter whose e-mail address definitely,
