    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~

        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
