    Post Yahoo Users...

    Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to
    track Yahoo Group users around the net and see what
    you're doing and where you are going similar to cookies.

    Yahoo is recording every website and every group you
    visit. Take a look at their updated privacy statement:

    http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy

    About half-way down the page, in the section on
    cookies, you will see a link that says web beacons.
    Click on the phrase web beacons.

    http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/...s/details.html

    That will bring you to a paragraph entitled, "Outside
    the Yahoo Network." In this section you'll see a little,
    "click here to opt out" link that will let you "opt-out" of
    their new method of snooping...

    Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.

    Notice the "Success" message on the top of the next
    page. Be Careful because on that page there is a "Cancel
    Opt-out" button that, if clicked, will undo the opt-out...

    I clicked on the link and it told me I'd opted out, but I hadn't signed in yet. How can I opt out of being followed, if they don't know who I am? :spudniklu
