Actually, I'm the admin and I haven't said a lot about the current glitches so far. ;-) And you're an occasional moderator of this list too, so it's fair you should have your say. > I just do not think Yahoo has > been a reliable or easy to use platform over the years. I don't agree that Yahoo hasn't been reliable. Sure, over the years, they have made changes to the admin interface without announcing them, but overall it has been reliable. I mind all the lists, including the newer Google ones, and they all have their glitches. > Adter being > hosted here for so long it seems prudent to take a serious look at > the alternatives, especially since these glitches keep coming back > to Yahoo. Lots has changed over the past few years. These glitches are infrequent, although I can't disagree that they have happened. This current one of duplicating messages and of having replies appear before the orginal posts is annoying but, like Mark, I think we'd have to be seriously put out to consider shifting a list with an 18-year archive. The likelihood of leaping out of the frying pan into the fire is fairly strong. The firebird-net-provider list was moved from Sourceforge to Google Groups six months ago and the Subscribe entry on the website was updated at the time. It's a low-traffic list compared to this one but I'm still having to moderate subscribe requests and first posts. Let's suppose that River's post yesterday put a fairly accurate finger on the current problems. Let's weather it for a week or two and see how things shake out.
