It also has ads, and I (and many others) think that Yahoo sells information about members to spammers. If you had asked, I would have suggested that we move the list to my server, where it's free and there are no ads. It's also just as easy for people to use. The only drawback is that there is no place for members to share files, or set up polls. I haven't seen members do either one on the list so far.
