Alright enough with the rumors on Delicious having the plugged pulled out by Yahoo! The people at Delicious have stepped out of the den and using the blog to pluck any suspicion about this happening. Relax loyal Delicious users, the service is here to stay.

Rumors started rolling out yesterday when there claims of Yahoo! selling off Delicious just because it serves no purpose at Yahoo. Agreed but that doesn’t mean Delicious itself is a service destined to be doomed. The folks at Delicious are however looking forward for a way to create a less Yahoo! dependant firm and we might very well hear a new plan sometime soon.

So what’s going to happen to my bookmarks? I would be worried just as much as anyone else is who has been a loyal user and is now alarmed at it being dead. You have all the options to export these bookmarks just to be on the safe side. While the rumor has been turned down, it makes it more obvious that either Yahoo or Delicious is definitely looking forward to break away.
