separate. The Groups project isn't even using a Group in its
communication. From what I understand the YMail Group is a user group,
but some Yahoo Mail project personnel are participating there.
The only places you get the drying paint dialog is on Group features
that haven't yet been touched, that are still using the old interface.
I'm very disheartened by the aesthetics of the new interface (hate the
avatars, the narrow text width, the font size, the date at the bottom
instead of top the posts, the animated busy ringo on every click, the
endless requirement for clicking, etc.
At least text in the latest revision responds to zooming. Anyway, all
that can hopefully be avoided by participating via email. To me the
worst thing is the virtual uselessness of the online archive in this
"brave new world". Can't link to a specific reply even if you do manage
to locate it (which is doubtful in the sea of "conversations"). Also
existing links to gems in the archives aren't going to work any more.
