      Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo
      Group users around the net and see what you're doing and where you
      are going similar to cookies. Yahoo is recording
      every website and
      every group you visit. Take a look at their updated privacy
      statement: http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy

      About half-way down the page, in the section on cookies, you will
      see a link that says web beacons. Click on the phrase web beacons.
      That will bring you to a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo
      Network."

      In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out"
      link that will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping.

      Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted. Notice the
      "Success" message on the top of the next page. Be careful because
      on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button that, if clicked,
      will *undo** the opt-out.
      Feel free to forward this to other groups.
