Being able to provide one, two, or 100 examples where it was practical obviously does not prove its practical in general.
But it does show that it is not "hopelessly impractical" in general.
The rest (“yahoo did not find it impractical”) is either imagination or hearsay.
It is hearsay, but I've no reason to doubt the members of Y!GMF who reported receiving such demands, or those who reported having such intercession on their own behalf.
There’s no reason to try to duplicate here policies that exist in yahoo just because they exist there.
There's also no reason to reject a good policy just because you don't like the cited example of its use in practice.
