No Easy Way Out For Yahoo! eGroups Subscribers 13

Groups, who manages former eGroups mailing lists has a strange policy on unsubscribing people who joined eGroups via e-mail subscription before eGroups have been taken over by Yahoo!--the only way to unsubscribe is to join Yahoo! (giving your full details and a corect e-mail address) and then unsubscribe using the Web interface. The e-mail unubscription feature, although theoretically still available, does not work. Looks like not all Yahoo! Groups subscribers are equal."

    yahoo did the same thing with geocities. back a LONG time ago, when i didn't know better(before the annoying ads). i had a geocities site which. I eventually forgot about it. recently, just after yahoo bout geo, i remembered that site and I decided enough was enough, so I tried to remove it, only that my old login/pass didn't work anymore. They said I had to sign up for a yahoo ID to access my site. It was a general headache and eventually i just said screw it.
