      If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups be aware that Yahoo is now using "Web
      Beacons" to
      track every Yahoo Group user.

      It's similar to cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every

      browser) you use.

      Please forward this to your other groups. You might
      complain, too, but I'm not sure if anyone is listening..."
