It is probably not the fault of any member - if this 'new' group operates as
described. The List members most likely signed up not knowing, and the grouply
hijacked their address list.
But, I have been thru all of the message posts this year (whew!) and the
following members messages are now moderated (meaning they have to go thru me
before they get to you) - either for the Grouply crap, or for other
zappafrankfan <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
zappatika <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
johnandsue2001_uk <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
mjhmjhmjh98 <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
destories <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
wicc_ed_stuff <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
If you are one of the above, and wish to justify yourself to me (to get your
posts unmoderated), please email me off list, and explain your actions. I'm not
banning anyone from the List until I can determine how this crap got rolling

Subject: [Zappa-List] Beware! Spam! Grouply is not good!
Sorry if this has been posted before but it needs to be repeated.
An online group called "Grouply" asks you to register as someone on
this group has "invited" you. Don't do it!!! It requires you to give
them your yahoo id and then it takes complete control of your yahoo
account and starts spamming everyone in your address book. It is
relentless and will make a lot of enemies for you.
Here is a copy of the email I received, again:
On October 27, hank woodz from your Zappa-List group sent you an
invitation to join Grouply so you can see their profile, friends, and
list of groups.
On Wednesday (November 19), this invitation will expire. Follow this
link to accept hank woodz's invitation.
Signing up is free and takes less than a minute.
Again, DON'T DO IT!!!
