My roomie uses Yahoo groups, and a friend of his just sent him the following warning about Yahoo Privacy. Please read and KEEP selfing!

Yahoo is 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. Take a look at their updated privacy statement: CLICK BELOW OR PASTE TO YOUR BROWSET....

About half-way down the page, in the section "Outside the Yahoo! Network", you'll see a little "click here" link that will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping. I strongly recommend that you do this. Once you have clicked that link, you are opted out.
Notice the "Success" message the top the next page.

***** Be careful because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.*****
