I agree, I aired my complaints, and they were all straightened out,
from the previous/next issue, to the choice of display (simple or
expanded) when you visit 'my groups', the only wish now is that it
would keep the same settings from visit to visit.
I have also been using the groups since pre-yahoo, and as stated,
it's a great setup, there are other groups on line, but yahoo beats
all that I've seen.
