Re: There Were Thirty-Nine of Us Yesterday
- I moderate a few different Yahoo groups. People come and go,
interests or interest levels change, maybe they've subscribed to too
many different groups and can't keep up with the volume of e-mail so
they downsize. Maybe their circumstances have changed and they will
no longer have regular internet access. Or maybe they're just going
on vacation and want to reduce the volume of e-mail that's going to
be waiting in their inbox when they get home. (Actually, on the
groups I moderate, that's not a good thing to do since my groups are
set so that posts by new members have to be approved by the
moderator, until they post something that isn't spam and I change
their settings. Quitting and re-joining means you'll fall back into
that new member category.) Anyway, I wouldn't worry about it or take
it personally, unless of course we started to see a mass exodus
here. It seems like the group is still in a growth trend overall
