My 2cts to this discussion:

1) A tool like the one tha Lester talked about is a very usefull tool when
we want to search old messages for old solutions to old problems. I like
2) Yahoo Groups have some beneficts that we can not forget: For example: a)
it's easy for a new user to find it and become part of it (we all were
'newUsers' in the past); b) Google search the groups and sometimes we get
faster answers and new users in that way.

I can live with 'Yahoo Crap'. :-)
