Aha, I see what happened now.

If you just click on the link and go to the WEB site and pick the defaults (as I did)
It will ask for your Yahoo ID.  Apparently this gives you "Web features such as polls,
photos, and the member list."

However, if you change the default to the other radio button selection (forget what 
called it now) you can get just the listserver,  and they don't ask
for a Yahoo ID,  or ask any more questions.



FAR> Phil,
FAR> This is the response I got after following Altium's instructions:

FAR> ".....................We have received your request to join the dxptechforum
FAR> group hosted by Yahoo! Groups, a free, easy-to-use community service.
FAR> This request will expire in 21 days.

FAR> 1) Go to the Yahoo! Groups site by clicking on this link:

FAR> I chose the option, "2)REPLY.....", and got confirmation a little while
FAR> later. I got no request for an ID or a password via this route. However, it
FAR> is conceivable that my name is already somewhere in the bowels of Yahoo's
FAR> (huge?) database, but, would that qualify me................?

FAR> Regards,
FAR> Fred A Rupinski
