      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:
      href="http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy">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 exempted.

      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.

        This has been Yahoo's practice for the last four years or thereabouts.
        Read the privacy policy carefully and opt out - and then be careful you
        don't opt in again, as some of the choices are a tad obscure.....
