Hi all -- thought you'd be interested in this one, for those on 
>> Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo Group
>> users around the net and see what you're doing and where you are going -
>> similar to
>> cookies. Yahoo is recording every website and every group you visit. If
> you
>> would like to opt out of their tracking system, here's how to do it:
>> Go here:

>> In the column on the left side, under the title of "Special Topics",
>> click
>> "cookies".
>> At the bottom of this new page you will see a link that says "Click
>> here."
>> Click that.
>> On that new page click the phrase "web beacon". That will bring you to a
>> paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo Network."
>> In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out" link. Click
> it.
>> Then STOP. What would normally be a confirmation button on the next page
>> will opt you back in.
