Forget it comes to mind ....

This is an ongoing battle, and one that there is simply not a PERFECT
solution to. A number of lists I work with have moved to 'forums' and I
simply don't bother to use them now. One of my main areas of income is
CNC kit, but the main forum site for that is a nightmare so rarely sees
any activity from me.

If Chrome can use Yahoo on line than something is wrong with Chrome.
It's not a browser I have even downloaded but the on-line Yahoo stuff
works fine on all the other browsers I test my sites on.

ESSENTIAL to any good list is a fully functional email interface AS WELL
as the on-line view. From that point of view Yahoo ticks most of the
boxes. *I* don't have a problem with the on-line views - I rarely use
them since everything is available locally.

So while I have no fundamental objection to a move - it must be to a
soultion that ACTUALLY improves things rather than killing of half of
the user base!
