SPAM filter for groups and by default turned it on for all groups.
Unfortunately this spam filter stinks and many non-spam messages go
right into it waiting for a moderator to approve them. Because it is
so bad, most groups have turned off that feature.
Second, the owner of this group no longer know the password they used
to log onto here and so is effectively locked out of the group and can
not make changes or approve those spam message or turn it off. So we
are effectively owner/moderator-less.
My posts all seem to fall into the spam bucket so now for this
particular group, to reply I always use the "Reply (via web post)"
option. If you post from the web page rather than your email address,
this avoids the spam bucket. If you still have your message you posted
earlier, then cut and paste it into a message from the web site. Just
make a mental note that for this group to always post via the web page.
I know the original owner has tried to get Yahoo to reset the passwork
or let the owner back in, but so far no luck. So we just have to deal
with these little quirks instead.

Thanks for the heads up Patrick. Lets see if THIS works.
I have a question for people here. What is everyone's opinion on Sand
I've read so many conflicting things. Some say it's harder to clean
than gravel; another said it's cleaner as long as you go with a large
enough size..etc etc.
What is everyones experiences/ opinions with it.?

rough, smooth, etc. of both sand and gravel that it is hard to compare.
For example, play sand is very fine while sand blasting "sand" comes in
grain sizes big enough that it is essentially small gravel (and yes
people buy sand blasting material as a cheap alternative when setting
up large tanks).
With sand the problem with keeping it clean is that, assuming fine
grain sand, you can not easily vacuum it like you can gravel since
rather than tumbling around in the bottom while poop, uneaten food,
etc. floats up and out, sand will often suck right up as well. Sand can
also have the issue of compacting if you use too much, don't have
plants, don't have diggers or sifters.
On the other hand, I have one tank, a ten gallon, that uses sand and it
has been up and running for a number of years now without issue. I
didn't use a lot, I do have plants in it, and also it has been
populated with animals that will dig through it, sift it, or otherwise
move it around (Malaysian trumpet snails, kuhlii loaches, yoyo loaches,
etc.). In the years it has been running, I have never tried to vac the
substrate on in that tank but it seems to be doing ok.
Also with sand or gravel, be careful what you buy. Some is inert while
others can be types that will alter your water chemistry (e.g.
limestone). Unless you keep fish that like hard water with a high pH,
you generally do not want marine sands which tend to have a lot of
ground shells and other calcium type material and you probably want to
avoid any gravel that is "epoxy coated".
So I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other. It really
depends on the setup and the type of sand or gravel. It is hard to make
a blanket statement for or against either.
