An option to prevent automatic merging
I'm a developer at Soocial (soocial.com). And we're trying to sync with yahoo via yahoo contacts API. The problem is sometimes yahoo merges contacts for no reason. It really messes up contacts.
I created an empty yahoo account, and synced with it. It merged numerous contacts in it. For example:
-- This contact was merged with 2 other, and those 3 contacts have no common details whatsoever.
-- This is one of the contacts it was merged with.
This is how it looks in yahoo now:
My guid is: BTGAQJO7IAL2WUS7HFM2G3DYK4
The yahoo id of that contact is: 16777247
We can provide much more examples of incorrect mergings. Could you speed up adding an API for turning the automatic merging off?
