[CT Birds] Problems for Yahoo users.

Pardon me while I take a moment from birds for an important problem with the list.
It was necessary for me to block all CTBirds subscriptions coming from @yahoo.com addresses. That means if Yahoo users send a message to CTBirds it will not go through. If you have another subscribed email address please post to the list from that.
This is my short-term response to a serious problem. It is like
putting my finger in the dike; it keeps things from getting worse but it is not a fix.
Yahoo recently made a change that involves everyone using an email address
with the @yahoo.com domain and impacts every mailing list like CTBirds. I will not try to explain the technical
details; see links at the end of this message for that. Because of the problem, this morning over 140 users were unsubscribed
from CTBirds. Only a few of them were Yahoo users as the end result hits everyone. (I think I re-subscribed everyone correctly, but can't really be sure.)
When I know more I will let everyone know.
