Oh, 1 more thing...
I cannot prevent "members" from using the 'individual message feature' to send 
emails to selected other members; I can only prevent them from sending message 
to the entire List. That's why it's critical when you do receive this kind of 
dubious stuff from the "List" (it will look like it's coming from the site, but 
it isn't - it's coming directly and only to you) that you let me know ASAP. The 
longer you wait, the tougher it is for me to rectify...
Doing my best to keep the List a place where you can safely hang your hat, and 
let your Frank Flag Fly!

  Oddly enough, most of these turned out to be moderated anyway!
  This one - mjhmjhmjh98 <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - is the likely culprit, if there 
really is a culprit...
  For the rest, I suggest removing the "Grouply" crap from your machine before 
contacting me - or removing yourself from the List (before I do).

  (God, don'cha love when I start talking all authoritative?)

    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 
questionable posts:
    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 here...
    Thank You,

      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:

      RE: Frank?

      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!!!
