Re: Viable alternative to Yahoo


Doesn't matter about the new guy thing, or your experience, given the
prior attempts to make things better.

You could be struck by lightning tomorrow.
It is unlikely that all the Yahoo guys are struck by lightning, no
matter how many people want that ;-).

You just have to ignore the complaints, and the regular offers to do
something about it.

<lol> Ok, I get the message: Members reserve the right to bitch about

Seriously, I do get the point about the new guy being untrusted. "A bird
in the hand is worth two in the bush" and all. Nobody would want to make
the switch and then discover the new forum disappeared overnight. There
is also the consideration that this group is a well known resource with
links pointing to it from many related forums -- that's how I found you.
Moving would result in dead links and frustrated potential new blood. So
there are some really good reasons not to move.

So I'll just ignore any further complaints about Yahoo.

(Just for the record, I've been listowner elsewhere for 14 years and
website admin for a group of sites for 10. I'm just new to you guys. ;-) )

SPOT ON , Stefan!!!

"Short story is, as much as people dislike and distrust yahoo, in the
end it turns out they distrust you even more (hard truth, I know).

And they definitely do not like change, at all.

Until yahoo croaks for good (which is likely) you are wasting your time."
