    Well, Yahoo has kicked me in the butt yet again! I run several adult Yahoo Groups, many of which are in the Adult section, but Yahoo seems to enjoy going around and deleting adult groups, no matter where you place them.

    I don't know much about MSN Groups, but from what I can tell, there's no way to search for specific adult groups at MSN. Does anyone know more than I do? They have an adult section, but it looks like you have to scroll through every single group listed there.

    If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    mentatzps: Maybe it will sounds very common or silly, and I don't know if it's a very good method, but as far as I am concerned, I type keywords in the search field of groups. Sometimes I got nice groups, sometimes I got groups which have nothing to do with the keyword or with I wanted.

    Don't know if it helps you very much... :-/

    I don't think that helps, but thanks.

    I've had some problems with Yahoo before. One time, someone who I'd larted spammed Yahoo until my club was deleted.

    Mark, I came across these lists and thought they might help.

    They are mostly yahoo groups but you'll find some msn groups listed, too.

    Maybe the individual groups will have links that will help you.

    Thank you, Pecker. I was actually trying to find a way to search for MSN Groups within MSN, since not everyone lists their group with those other websites. But that's okay - it appears that MSN is just like Yahoo in that respect. I guess they're afraid of lawsuits or something...

    Finedessert: MARK: This might be part of the problem I got this from the owner of quite a few Yahoo Groups.


    Dear Members,

    There is a group of sick individuals, one goes by the
    name of secret squirrel,
    with the following email adress's:
    secretsquirrellllll@yahoo.co.uk,

    linbel@acay.com.au,
    iamabadboy77@hotmail.com;
    his IP is 210.50.30.20;

    the other psycho is
    pbowen@waitrose.com profile

    http://profiles.yahoo.com/pbowen57uk
    These two really sick clowns like to plant kiddie porn
    in groups, then report the groups to yahoo for
    deletion. They also go around pretending to be some
    one else, to post their lies & kiddie porn.

    They have deleted many groups, maybe some that you
    moderated or belonged too.

    Secret squirel runs this pathetic group of losers:
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GAYGROUPOwnersAssociation

    There sole purpose is to delete groups they don't like
    and gloat about it.

    These two definately have no life other then this.
    They are consumed with child porn.

    Some have taken steps to report them to authorities. .
    They are extremely anti black & asian. Please write to
    yahoo about this filth. They know nothing, but to try
    to ruin it for decent people. They actually border on
    Neo-Nazi's .

    We will try starting our groups over, will watch for
    their names, if you see them in the membership, please
    warn every one.


    Grandpa

    Grandpa, I've gotten the same e-mail, paragraph for paragraph, link for link, except that the usernames and e-mail addresses were changed. (i.e. instead of Secret Squirrel the name was Douglas).

    I never open links or attachments in such e-mail. They are invariably Trouble (note the capital T).

    Very interesting. I just attempted to join their Yahoo Group. It's a restricted membership - they send you a message asking for the names of your groups to "prove" that you're a moderator of at least one gay group. Hmmm...very likely, the only reason they want the name of the group is so they can plant their kiddie porn in the Files section of your group.

    Thanks for the warning. Even if the names are changed in each email, it's startling to think about.

    fastfastr: Can't some report THAT group to Yahoo TOS? Why doesn't Yahoo watch their accounts?

    You have to spam Yahoo to get anything done. But when you spam enough, you can get anyone's account TOSsed.
