Much better to migrate to a private server, if it comes to that.

The new Yahoo Groups update seems to cause lots of problems.
In my case, several times it takes several hours for my post to get
through. Also sometimes when I click on "Reply" button, it does not
include quotes of previous messages (I have to copy the quotes and paste
it to my reply).
And now Rolando's post does not seem to auto-wrap paragraphs. One
paragraph is an infinitely long single line.
Anyone else having this issues lately?
I think we should migrate to Google Groups. I've heard many good things
about Google Groups and should be much better than Yahoo Groups.
