      Subject: [WFC] Admin: Yahoo may be Tracking You

      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.) Yahoo is recording every website and
      every group you visit. Take a look at their updated privacy
      statement:

      1. http://privacy. yahoo.com/ privacy

      2. 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".

      3. 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 which will let you "opt-out" of their new method of
      snooping.

      4. Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.[Notice
      the "Success" message on the top of the next page. Be careful because
      on
      that page there is also a "Cancel Opt-out" button which, if clicked,
      will *undo* the opt-out. It appears after you have hit the opt-out
      button so is very confusing.
