Yahoo Should Block Them

Someone wrote, “And, Grouply isn’t the only ‘aggregator’ on the horizon… there’s another one still in early Beta testing called … so if we don’t want to have to go through the entire process a second time, let’s start working at getting Grouply adjusted to our satisfaction and then when makes its appearance we can point to Grouply and say … ‘They do it This way, why don’t You?'”

Yes, and more may be coming down the pipe.  This is why I feel that it would be best if Yahoo blocked any and all such aggregator / alternate-delivery services as they become available and provide an opt-in checklist of them to group owners.

Or, maybe it’s time to move my groups to a venue where this kind of thing can’t be done in the first place, so I don’t have to be constantly looking over my shoulder to see who’s coming in the back door.  Surely Yahoo doesn’t want a mass migration of that kind to start!
