Subj: Yahoo - Is there anyone there?

I have a problem with Yahoo groups. I set up a group and
then by mistake deleted the owner of the groups account. Now
Yahoo have an orphen group with no owner to manage it.
Needless to say this makes the group useless.

The problem gets worse because I can't get hold of anyone at
Yahoo to talk to about this problem. I am just met with
silence from the one email address I could find.

I thought the whole point of being on the internet and
having email was that people could contact you. I guess
because it is a free service they give you the service you
pay for.

Subj: Dont you just love the law?

ahahahah 100% effective at preventing the transfer of
copyrighted material... bwhahahahahah

I wonder if the judge has ever heard of mail. Yep, good old
snail mail... gee, i wonder if he's going to tell the Post
Office that they are no longer able to transfer letters and
parcels unless they can guarantee no-one is using it for
transferring copyrighted material. Can we say $5 VCD Movies
from Asia?

Is he going to demand that people cease using FTP/HTTP
servers, Telnet or IRC until they can prove that it is
unable to transfer copyrighted material?

It really doesnt matter what you try to do, people will
always find a way... prime examples being the increased
traffic in MP3 channels on IRC and, in the "real" world,
drug smuggling.

Which leads us to the obvious questions... What is this
Judge smoking? and can we get it in NZ?

Now Have Your Say
