Angry Yahoo Sucks!

Is anyone here from the Yahoo Bristol Forum? I have been unable to get a message or a reply off for several days now d/t yahoo, and no one is offering support from yahoo, or the Bristol list owner. As I cannot tolerate half ass, and choose not to waste large periods of time trying to figure out where my emails are going, I will no longer be active on that forum. I have posted a lengthy response to the "sole refinishing" question" on that forum, which went off into yahoo oblivion. I hope to see all of my fellow Bristoleers and Bristolini on this forum. Hopefully we can just loose the other one entirely.

Works for me

I joined a few months back and have not had any problems, Yahoo is based on user ability and ease of use... I consider myself most untechnical, and have had no problem with it... that said it is good to be many places, keeps the genetic code diversified

Hi Doc... You still cussing Yahoo? I droped The yahoo Bristol list Because of all the cry babys. I will give sail net a shot, and see what happens. There is nothing like having people with little junky broken production boats complain about others having fun on a list of Bristol owners. Way too much nuts and bolts. Sure want to help out, if I can... but bitch about everything... As they say in Jersy "forgetaboutit"

Be well.. have a good new year
Jim

I've been on most of the Bristol lists for many years and never had any problems with any of them - maybe it's your computer or your service.

I have discussed this at length with Yahoo support as well as with the many members who share difficulties. It is not skill level and it is not our PC's. It is that the moderator labeled some of us as "moderated", so that all postings must be withheld for a review process, typically taking anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Even then, half the messages delete. If you are lucky enough to get one posted, by the time others read it, they are wondering why you are responding to something posted 6 weeks ago.

Well then, it must be my computer and my provider - my posts appear within seconds, never more than a minute, of sending - same thing for Massismo and a couple of others - I do see a few that are obviously delayed, but they are few and far between.
Ask the "Yahoo support" people to explain that to you - see what they tell you.
