Subject: Nice Group!!

I can certainly understand your point of view. Frolicking Ferrets also left Yahoo and went to MSN. We're much happier there. Yahoo really messed up when they made all their changes. I only hope they will get their act together soon as I still have a few other groups (non-ferret-related) I host there and would hate to see my members lose interest because Yahoo is so awful. Well, either way, I wish you all the best of luck! Of course, now I'll need a new code to put on our website to steer people this way! lol!!
