This is a hoax which appears to be a rework of the MSN Petition Hoax, which was a rework of the AOL IM Charge Hoax and the Hotmail Charge Hoax. Can you see the pattern forming here?

Yahoo is going to charge for some of it's services, but there is NO evidence that Messenger is one of those services. The services that are likely to be charged for can be found here: http://biz.yahoo.com/fo/010730/0730dsf.html

Even if they did decide to charge for Messenger, do you really think they would take any notice of a Petition? NO......

Below is the one of the versions of this Hoax that is propagating via Chat and E-Mail:
