The news groups in yahoo can be set up so that only invited people can be
part of the newsgroup ie. Only they can receive and post messages, chat
online with each other, share files, pictures etc.
The group settings you see tell you the rules for the group ie. Anyone can
post to dist-gen but the membership is restricted so no one but myself can
go in and play with the email messages stored at yahoo.
