      Hi All,

      Sorry for the cross posting.

      Thought people might want to know this new method of snooping by Yahoo

      Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo Group
      users around the net and see what you're doing and where you are going -
      similar to cookies. Take a look at their updated privacy statement:

      <http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html>http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html


      About half-way down the page on the right, in the section "Outside the
      Yahoo! Network", you'll see a little "click here" link that will let you
      "opt-out" of their new method of snooping. Once you have clicked that link,
      you are opted out. Notice the "Success" message the top the next page.

      Be careful because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button that, if
      clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.

      Feel free to forward this to other groups.



      Good birding,
