Why Does FS Uses Yahoogroups (Re: [Clip] Re: Removing stopwords from word list
- Hi Everybody Reading This,
I copied the OffTopic list this message so that for those that
want to continue discussing it can do so over there. Please reply
to the [OT] copy of this and not the [Clips]. TIA Oh, see my
sigline or a [NTB] footer to get on the OffTopic list which we
need to go on for further discussion. This is basically about
"why we use and will continue to use Yahoogroups, so you can
delete now if you don't care or could care less. I'm pretty well
firm on the idea of staying with Yahoogroups...

PasteBoard on for anytime I am ordering something, filling about
forms that have message/comments boxes, for setting up things
like updating Yahoogroups messages sent out, and a host of other
things. The reason for whatever unknown reasons the pages get
wiped out or terminated for taking to long to fill out something,
I have it still in NoteTab to Paste in again when retrying. This
disconnect/drop off, or whatever causes happens to me from all
sorts of places. My point is to say that Yahoogroups caused it is
an unfair comment. I know that those things happen for all kinds
of reasons. Having my PasteBoard active during the times I don't
want to loose 15 minutes of re-typing saves me all kinds of time
and aggravation. Just the fact that I have the need to make a
PasteBoard tells me that it happens a lot and in other places
than Yahoogroups. In fact, I don't ever remember Yahoogroups cut

many other things prevent us from making or buying our own
discussion mailing list. Actually, we have one, but don't use it
for our Fookes Software [FS] discussion mailing lists. We might,
in the future, use it for a very small amount of beta testers on
our FS Private beta testing list. Using our own list or
transferring to another list, for me, is just not reasonably
worth doing for larger list. The pros far out weight the cons as
far as staying as it right now. We have had private/our own lists
before and they just didn't work out well. Yahoogroups is the
least hassle to maintain and for the users too because of multi-
list members. Just one setting has to be changed for it to span
across all the lists they are subscribed to. Yahoogroups has only
caused minor inconveniences at time and I and very happy that
they exist. I was with them when they were the little guys:
MakeList and OneList. I've watched them grow for over 12 years
and for the most part am extremely happy with them. I've seen,
used, and posted messages on a host of discussion mailing lists.
There are certain things that I require, if possible, that I will
not move to a list if they have or have not the feature, or
whatever. Yahoogroups hits my "most wanted/needed" list the
majority of time over any other list.
We'll stay with Yahoogroups who, as a whole, has mean very nice
for us. I find that this subject falls into the "use Linux, not
puking Microsoft" crowd. There's a minority of people that like
to bash Microsoft, etc. and they post so often about it making a
lot of practically slanderous remarks, that some would think
everybody hates Microsoft. Not true!, at all. I don't bother with
those kind of threads. They normally just get deleted after I
scan very quickly to see if it has to go to OffTopic or for the
cussing/bashing to send out personal messages, etc.
