Re: Yahoo system failure

CAL <cal@...>

You spend a lot of time here helping people. It also seems that the "moderator"   [whoever that is]  is MIA. HINT! HINT!
What say the rest of you members????

Many things can effect how fast a message is posted. Yahoo is kind of like a road crew that constantly has your streets torn up but never seem to finish the job. The latest PIA is undelivered mail messages. It seems there are some new members that entered invalid email addresses, or old members that changed there address. When this happens members start getting these bounced messages. The Moderator is supposed to rectify this by contacting or removing the offending member. Has anyone else been getting these recently?

I agree with Denny in that the posting of replies or new threads does seem rather inconsistent. I have had emails as fast as I could down load the mail and at other times a couple of hours. Until Denny mentioned it I just blamed my ISP.

Denny, you're not being moderated. There is no way in hell that your post would have made it to the board that fast if you were. When a member is on moderated status his or her (?) post goes to the moderator's in-box, via a Yahoo "Moderate Notification", which includes a link to the Accept-Reject page. If the moderator isn't reading his mail it could sit there for days or weeks until it expires. Considering the fact that you are a very active (and Valued) member here, I think you will be much happier selecting "Receive Individual Emails" in your preferences section. Follow the link that Cal sent.
