      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

      About half-way down the page, in the section on cookies you will see
      a link that says "web beacons."
      Click on the phrase "web beacons."

      That will bring you to a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo
      Network."
      In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out" 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 on the top of 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.
