True. It didn't begin like that though (I happen to know a former colleague of the guys who invented Yahoo. He work in my laboratory). But the first creators sold it, and it became what we now know :(( .

Others simply contact other members, like a few did with me ;))) .

Only the listowner can do that, but this archive doesn't have a listowner anymore, and Yahoo won't listen to anyone (the same problem exists with Romanceconlang), and refuses even to erase this group. As long as they have this attitude, the problem will stay the same. Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
