RE: No Yahoo, please don't do this once again...
I take “not representative of the general population at Yahoo” to mean that those in this group are a little or a lot more savvy about Yahoo and computers than the majority of people. There are some people that I know who just “live with” the changes and problems Yahoo has been having recently. They have no real desire to dig into the workings of Yahoo or Yahoo Mail to customize them to their liking. Even my wife, who knows a fair amount about Yahoo and computers in general, did not have several things working the way she hoped. Things that I knew, possibly coming from this group, other groups, or general websites, allowed me to help her get things running a little more efficiently and personalized.
And that last statement reaffirms my “take” on the statement - this group (and others) have some very knowledgeable people who are willing to share that knowledge with others. So, from me at least, thank you!
Just wondering what you mean by "not representative of the general population at Yahoo"?

Since the members of this Group are not representative of the general population at Yahoo, I wanted to mention that I just saw a Message posted in another Group, complaining about the exact same thing I have been compalining about (unwanted chats and updates in ymail) and guess what the OP was advised to do? - remove the complete contact list! Apparently that solves the problem, sigh...
