Alternative to rms to eliminate spam

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Don Stauffer in Minnesota, Mar 27, 2008.

  1. I have checked and there is a Yahoo group "digital photography". I
    joined the group but have not recieved any messages yet- do not know
    how active it is. I will report after a few days.

    I belong to a number of Yahoo groups, and moderate two. There is
    occasional spam that slips through. Most groups are set up with
    messages themselves NOT moderated, but require membership to join the
    group and many moderate membership. Sure, a "new member" occasionally
    slips through and posts spam, but that member is then kicked out.
    Someone could indeed keep rejoining under new names, but this has not
    been a problem so far.

    Yahoo groups allow you the choice of receiving posts via email, or
    reading them from the group web site. For really active groups there
    is a digest version where the messages are bundled 25 at a time and
    sent out. However, for a group with as many posts as rpd, even that
    may be impractical, and web reading may be the best solution. I have
    selected the digest option for the digital photography group, and will
    let this group know how that works out.

    Yahoo isn't so bad if there is no suitable newsgroup available. Along
    with my newsgroups I use 16 Yahoo groups by email. It is much easier
    and quicker to read them by email. The key is to use a client
    application that can thread email so it looks just like a Usenet
    group. I can't remember the last time I had to read a group or forum
    on the web.

    My group covers all Olympus DLSRs in case you are interested. There are
    other Yahoo groups covering other brands as well.

    Yes, yahoo-groups are ok. Except for the Advertising they attach to
    every message posted.
    But as long as I'm not sure that they wont be taken over by Microsoft
    soon I won't attach to them more than I'm already.
    When Microsoft takes Yahoo, I'll be off of flickr soon. And google won't
    be the alternative, I think.

    You are aware of the terms of service with the groups and that you give up
    your right to your "intellectual property" to that which you post?

    Don't use the web interface - set up email correctly. There are no
    adverts in the group emails unless you consider the list of links at
    the end of the message to be adverts.

    >But as long as I'm not sure that they wont be taken over by Microsoft


    I don't care who owns the service as long as it works.
