      According to yahoomail I am the youngest - it says I am under 18 & cannot use "ask Questions" or join 360 degrees - I am actually 49 ! How do I enter my correct age ?

And believe it or not, her post asking for personal info wasn't her first on the group either (confused yet?). She was posting comments even before then, and was using a different alias than the one you know now.

      > When her second version hit the group, it drew accusations within minutes for being a phisher. Given, the timing of her post and Ryan's introduction was out of order (and it was my fault as I should have waited for Ryan's before letting Michelle's delivery to the group), but I guess you can tell how moderation (okay, better moderation) can avoid such incidents.

      > Yes, moderation is a pain - to both posters AND moderators. Posters want to see their posts unmoderated and delivered to the group faster, and moderators can use a lighter load. But things as they were now seems to work - no one's voice is unheard (even those accused Michelle for phishing), and delay due to moderation wasn't really as long as you'd think (quite a bit were due to the system).

      > I followed it as clear as day, but you are obviously discussing options with someone that has control issues and sees nothing beyond that. This isn't a group that discusses formulas or secrets of any kind, this is a public forum to talk about issues of yahoo beta mail, and since it's becoming such a sensorship of whether a person is going to approve a message or not it's almost not worth it, why do you think the other moderators are not participating?
