I suspect that having a Yahoo ID is the reason why I keep getting SPAM
messages of questionable honesty offering all sorts of "deals" on
non-railroad merchandise and services. This didn't happen much before
Yahoo took over Onelist. It looks to me like Yahoo provides their
vendors with direct access to our e-mail accounts, which allows them to
get around having cookies turned off on our machines. I am not happy
about this, but don't see any way around it at the present time unless I
just crawl into a cave and become a hermit. [Filters don't work, as the
most annoying vendors change their address and subject slightly with
each post to keep us off balance. Very sneaky.]

Kind regards,

STMFC Members,
Regarding the change to Yahoo, you don't need to do anything to continue to
receive messages. However, if you wish to use the Yahoo Groups web site you
have to acquire a Yahoo ID. I have to have a Yahoo ID in order to run the
group as owner. So far, nothing in particular has happened.... although it's
early yet. Since I have a Yahoo ID, I cannot use myself as a test of the
unsubscribe feature. The web site indicates that you merely send a message
to STMFC-unsubscribe@... but I can't verify that. There have
been some statements suggesting that you have to have a Yahoo ID to
unsubscribe. As I said, I cannot verify that. Since the number of members on
the STMFC is relatively low [ 55 ] I could handle unsubscribing at my end.
However, I will be gone from time to time myself so this might not be the
answer. Perhaps someone might test the unsubscribe feature...or maybe
someone already has...and let me know the results.
