The following message came up on another Yahoo list, which should be of interest
to this list as well. Note that I have already come across one of these "Grouply"
messages. You have been warned!

Subject: [4L] Warning for members of YahooGroups
Darryl Huffman alerted me to a problem that so far has eluded us, but has
been seen on other YahooGroups.
An email organization known as "Grouply" asks that you join, and use then
their service to better track all your various YahooGroups memberships - sorta
like an RSS fed thing I presume.
To join Grouply, you register with them by giving them your Yahoo ID and
password. Dumb idea. Once they have your ID and password, they hijack your
account and send emails to your groups asking more folks to join Grouply. For a
moderator of a list, they could conceivably take control of your list and do
with it as they will.
Any sign of 'grouply" activity on these lists will be dealt with by immediate
expulsion of the poster, since their account will already have been
Back to trains!!!
