      Calbirders,

      I've discussed this with Doug in the past, and we both felt that a change
      to another server too soon would be detrimental to the list. However, the
      Yahoo problems seem to mount. I would be open to moving Calbirds and all
      other California birding lists on Yahoo to a university or college
      listserver running the Listserv software. If any subscriber knows of such a
      listserver, please contact the listowners using the listowner address.


      Good birding,

          Bob and Carol, what is the unknown useless info they want? I followed
          the simple directions given here on CalBirds to set the Marketing
          Preferences to NO and I haven't gotten one single piece of Yahoo emails
          yet. All the questions on the Marketing Preferences page are Yes or No
          questions. It is easy to set them all to NO and from my experience they
          all stay that way.

          I realize this may temporarilly clutter up the listserv with a few
          "cries for help" messages, but on the other hand I know that there are
          at least eleven YahooGroups birding listservs for northern California
          alone and that could mean many different university hosts, with all the
          associated problems for subscribers.

          At the risk of annoying everyone, since this is aproblem universal to
          all the YahooGroups lists, I am going to cross post this to each of the
          eleven lists, but do it one-by-one so there won't be "Reply All" clutter
          added to our lives.
