Re: [NTB] my eyes - I see ads!
- Of course you are special!
That doesn't have anything to do with spinning wheels or banner ads, though.
You are special everytime you answer someone's question on the lists.

I changed them back. I still get ads, about 15 hours later. Does this happen
to everyone or am I special?

are taking over it appears. They are now out vandalizing/changing websites
without the users permission and these email delay's suggest that the
excessive unwanted email is starting to plug up the system like an
overflowing toilet. I wish that I knew what the answer is but I fear that
if this is to continue we will eventually lose what we have.
I suspect that a hacker/vandal has gotten into these websites and is
experimenting with changing them.
I would now suggest that we move on to other topics. Anyway, I have no
more to say on this.
> P.S. They aren't banners anymore, they are #@%$ skyscrapers!This wanders perilously close to being off-topic (forgive me this once
Jody), but if the skyscrapers you're talking about are the banners on the
Yahoo-groups web-site pages as opposed to the ones at the bottom of HTML
format email FROM yahoo-groups, you should definitely consider Proxomitron.
They've got some filters specifically designed to tame the Yahoo-groups
websites so that they are actually quite pleasant to visit :-)

- Hi Lotta and Others,
It happens to us all sooner or later especially for frequent
posters. I've been getting so bombarded with worms, way too many
messages, etc. It is hard just trying to keep up with the daily
routine. Gee, do the lists come with a frequent poster plan like
frequent flyers. ;) OffTopic mailto: link in my sig-line to
