 I got this email too. Replied to them and mentioned how this was another nail in their coffin and that most people that I knew that were in a Yahoo Group were fleeing to other similar services. Maybe that email went into a black hole, but I had to say it. Then as you say, they add insult to injury by saying that it is for our own good, that users' habits have changed. Which users? Those in Elbonia? Salvador

 It’s interesting how Yahoo tries to explain this change. As a moderator/owner of a couple of groups I received an email from Yahoo which explained how everything they were doing was for the benefit of the end users.  Yeah, right? Do they really expect anyone to believe them?

Another point: don’t forget that Yahoo was taken over by Verizon awhile back. So in my mind this affects the reputation of Verizon.
