      I have to respectfully disagree about the recycling (or non-recycling) of Yahoo IDs. I own a craft business by the name of KG Crafts. For years I wanted that Yahoo ID (kgcrafts), but it was taken. About every two weeks I would check the availability of it. Lo and behold, about a year ago it was available and of course I snatched it. This is the very ID I'm using in this group.

      As far as I've ever heard, Yahoo IDs (and the email address that goes with each one) are never recycled -- once taken, it is gone. You may have to settle for a variation in spelling or punctuation to get something close to the address you really want.
