        Whoops! I've been informed, and have confirmed, that "joined via web." is what shows when someone accepts an invitation. So it is not necessarily a problem to see that in a Restricted membership group. I had thought that accepting an invitation had a different description in the log.

        I just this week encountered the exact situation. At Shal's suggestion I have a screen shot indicating that the "member" to an access restricted group joined via the web without moderator approval. I have another screen shot confirming that moderator approval of a subscription request is required. How do I transmit these images and the group name to Yahoo so that they can investigate and "cure" the situation? Thanks in advance for the help.

        I now realise that some members who joined a group of mine were approved by other mods but they were not. They joined via this bug!!

        @jay - the thanks goes to Raj. All I did was comment on it, and suggest that those with evidence of it happening also report it through the Contact Customer Care form.

        A screen shot showing "joined via web." in the Membership activity log, in a group with Restricted membership" would be solid evidence of an "impossible" happening. Such an entry should only occur in groups with Open membership.
