      Dear eGroups Moderator,

      You are receiving this notice because one or more of the groups you
      moderate at eGroups will likely be affected by the changes described
      in this notice.  Please read on.

      eGroups is committed to offering you a high-quality, easy email
      group service.  As a business, we have two choices in paying for this
      service: one, charge members for its use, or two, include targeted
      text and HTML banner advertisements within emails sent to group
      members.  eGroups members have shown an overwhelming preference
      for a free, ad-supported service...and that's what we've provided.

      To continue a high-quality, free, email groups service, we would like
      to notify you about two modifications to these advertising policies:

      1. Improved Ad Removal
      eGroups already removes banner ads from message replies so they don't
      'pile up' during email discussions.  We've extended this technology
      to remove text ads in addition to HTML banners.  All members will
      benefit from this improvement to the email group experience.

      2. Movement of ads to the top of messages
      eGroups already inserts ads at the top of message digests, within all
      announcement-only and certain discussion groups.  We are extending
      this policy to include all groups.

      Both of these changes will go into effect early next week.

      For group owners who do not wish to have ads in messages to their
      groups, eGroups continues to offer a "No Advertising Option." For
      $4.95 (US) per month (payable in a single annual payment of $59.40),
      we will exclude all ads from the messages for your group.  For more
      info on this option, please see:
