I just noticed that the folders I created in Yahoo Mail to store

/You sound lonely sometimes, Barry.
Anyone who would take the time to create separate folders for the FFL
respondents, so as not to read their messages - and then to go and check
the folders you created to read what they said about you - is almost
pure OCD and paranoia.

//Only the lonely would create folders labeled "Canada", "Texas" or "New
Jersey." When you create filters and folders you miss out on the ability
to carry on a conversation using a threaded format.
Maybe that's proof Barry isn't interested in carrying on a conversation
- just trolling.
Maybe they've actually stopped posting their crap, I thought, so I
checked the Post Count post and it shows that Richard is still the
verbal diarrhea king and that the others still seem to be posting as
much as always. So then I scrolled through the list of incoming posts
on the Yahoo Groups reader (Neo), and their stuff seems to still be
appearing there, too. It's just not getting to Yahoo Mail. Go figure.
I'm just posting this to see whether Xeno (who created similar macros)
or anyone else has noticed anomalies like this, creating a difference
between what arrives on the FFL website and thus is visible in the
Yahoo Groups reader (Neo), and what arrives in your email feed.
Whatever the cause, color me properly grateful.
Whether it's <genuflect> God saving my macros from having to route
posts from these four to a trash folder that I then have to empty from
time to time unread, or some other cause, it's All Good. Praise the Lawd!
If it's really the work of God, I may evencontribute to a Maharishi™
yagya just to thank the dude for his efforts, and for having the same
taste in who to throw in the trash bin that I do. :-) :-) :-)
