I think we all agree Yahoo isn't the most perfect method of group discussion. It's just the one we're all using. We can complain, rail against the restrictions, search out our inner diva. But if we want to join and post to groups, for now it's Yahoo.
Most complaints have to do with "How can I get OUT of this group?" Generally accompanied by tremendous angst. The answer is simple enough since Yahoo is designed for self control. Scroll down to the bottom of your most current Yahoo message. You'll see, in blue,Visit Your Group. Look over to the right of the screen and you'll see, in even tinier letters:
Click on that middle word "Unsuscribe" and follow the prompts. Easy-Peasy, isn't it? Took me a while to find it, I was visiting the group and flailing around for a while, until...huh, lookie there!
If you want to stay in a Yahoo Group and reduce the number of daily messages you can "Visit Your Group" and set your message delivery to "digest only." Please, if you do this, and choose to answer an e-mail, be VERY sure to delete that loooong trail of messages following your reply. Your fellow group members will appreciate this and no doubt share good wishes.
I send those Good Wishes in your direction, along with expectations of many wonderful words written in the new year.

running her Salukis around
the dog show ring, or elbows deep in garden
soil, and not often enough in front of her computer, searching for that
perfect phrase to convey deep emotions. Her recent books include the
Stormhaven Love Stories, Romance with a bit of suspense, a bit of humor,
and a lot of love.
She helps out MFRW by moderating posts and answering how to questions.
