    Those of us who have been around awhile remember that our first MB as such (actually, a group where we did a lot ofwas a Yahoo Group. Yahoo is shutting down all its groups later this year and deleting all content. So if there is anything you want to save in the old NAWCC group, you'll need to download it soon.

    Just a by the way. Many of the Yahoo groups have or are migrating to Groups.io which is said to be a better platform anyway.

    I have always wondered why they did not feel comfortable sharing the same content here. I guess some people feel like going "on line" is equivalent to taking a trip, where email is home delivery.
