Dear Art Educators,
Pardon the non-art ed related topic
This is just a fair warning to you... Many have told me of a like problem.
If you have received strange invite message to groups - or have received
list mail from other Yahoo groups that you did not request, it is because
your Yahoo Preferences are set up to receive them. You need to go to My
Groups - then click preferences. Then over to the far right is Edit. Uncheck
that group moderators can add you to the group and Uncheck that group
moderators can invite you.
I have already received SPAM and virus emails on this NEW Road Runner
address. At first I thought it was because of my Getty list post...Then
later in the day when I received more it was evident that it was because of
Yahoo lists. I am taking the time to report all SPAM I receive to Road
Runner (as long as I can keep up with it. I know the Virus email addresses
are spoofed - as one was somethingnet@... address).
I may go back to posting here with Yahoo address as with that account I
don't see the virus and spam come rolling in (it goes to bulk folder). It is
"here we go again" time.... It was nice to have two days of virus free and
spam free mail.
