Did you send the request with more than 20W?
There are a few QRP groups on http://mailman.qth.net/, personally I like the groups that use mailman, and maybe they won't mind the OP sometimes runs a little more than 5 watts
Curious, I'm still the owner of one and an admin on several others, and they very rarely get spam.
priceless! you made me screech!
wait- we're short two--sex and spies (are spies intrigue?).
I own a couple of groups. The situation with spam is weird. A year or two can go by without much spam at all, then one day a new person joins the group and posts one piece of spam. A month later, you're seeing 20 spam posts a day and the group is now unusable.
I found that the only way to get it under control was by approving each new member, and asking them to make a brief statement about why they're interested in joining. Also, if someone posts something that is clearly spam (e.g., a link to a porn or dating site), I ban them immediately and without warning.
Did you know you're a bot? (Sorry for the obtuse reference to Southpark, "Does she know she's an ad?")
The main issue for me was/is how unreliable the platform has become. Rarely a day goes by where you either cannot access the web archives, or messages take forever to appear, etc.
Yes, I tried different browsers, and even different internet connections, from different providers. Never a 'dull' moment with Yahoogroups.
That said, I prefer platforms such as QRZ or eHam now. It's just a natural progression, I guess. BBS-Fidonet-Usenet-mailing list-forums....what's next?
That was my first thought... I used to be a member of that and several other Yahoo! groups, but then decided to delete my Yahoo! accounts altogether. That was before their security "issues" became problems, although my accounts were never hacked. Yahoo! has become a wasteland (slow, inefficient, and insecure) and a waste of time, much like AOHell.
You do know who owns AOL now? And Yahoo?
