[filmscanners] RE: Yahoo Automatic Spam Generator



You are right; it was not explicitly said but inferred (at least as I read
it- "I've just learned this from another list and I encourage everyone to
pass this on *to any other* Yahoo Groups they belong to" ). However, if it
is a general warning, it is one that is pertainent to Yahoo and its groups
and not this list except very indirectly in so far as list members may also
belong to Yahoo groups.

If and since the list is not under the domain of Yahoo, I fail to see how
the offered solution is relevant to members of this mailing list with
respect to this list's functioning and operations; it is only a relevant
solution for Yahoo and groups under its domain.

But there is no point in making a big deal out of this, so I think we ought
to leave it rest here.

I don't think he ever said that this was a Yahoo Group..... i gather it's
just a general warning.... and a solution:)

Very interesting; but I believe that the Filmscanners list is not a Yahoo
group.  It is not owned or run by or through Yahoo (although Yahoo may very
well have pirated the postings on the list and put them out as if the group
was one of theirs, which constitutes both theft and copyright violation.  I
am sure Tony Sleep, the Filmscanners owner and moderator could take legal
action against Yahoo if he so desired for appropriating his list and the
post on it without authorization or permissions; and he and the individual
posters on the4 list could file copyright violation actions against Yahoo
for reproducing  copyrighted materials (in general but in this case
commercially for profit) without permission of the copyright owner (i.e.,
the writer of the post and in some cases the list owner).
