You may want to Opt Out of Yahoo's marketing tracking mechanism.
Here are the directions on how to do so.
Yahoo is Tracking Group Members
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 group
you visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo. Look at their
updated privacy statement at
On the left find a paragraph/box entitled "Opt-Out."
This will let you "opt-out" of their snooping. Click it and then click
the opt-out button on the next page.
Note that Yahoo's invasion of your privacy - and your ability to opt-
out of it - is not user-specific. It is MACHINE specific. That means
you will have to opt-out on every computer (and browser) you use.
Please send this to anyone or any group you would like.
I have also heard that Yahoo goes in and "re-sets" the opt out, so you
may choose to do this every few months...
