Hi All, not sure that this is the right Forum, just thought you might be interested, a friend sent me this via email ...

If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now using
"Web Beacons" to track every Yahoo Group user. It's similar to
Cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every web site and every group you
Visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo. Look at their updated
Privacy statement at click here

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." On the page that opens, on the left
Find a box entitled "Opt-Out."

In that section find "opt-out of interest-matched advertising" link
That will let you "opt-out" of their snooping. Click it and then click
The opt-out button on the next page.

I am adding the link for you to opt out at

click here


Note that Yahoo's invasion of your privacy - and your ability to
Opt-out of it - is not user-specific. It is MACHINE specific. That
Means you will have to opt-out on every computer (and browser) you use.
