Please include YEAR in post dates
Posts in groups I belong to have the date and time of day of the posting. However, the date does not include the year. However, when a new post has the same title as an old thread, Yahoo! Groups considers it an addition to the thread. This causes a lot of confusion because the year of each post is not shown.
1. Please have the display include the year of each post!
2. Wouldn't it make sense for a thread to be continued only if an answer replies to a former post in that thread, not just because the title is the same? This "feature" has caused years-old posts in some groups to suddenly reappear.

This may be related: Going through many messages in our group that are years old, I notice that all messages from July of previous years (I am writing this in July) display the month, day, and time of posting. But all messages from the other 11 months of the year display the month, day, and year. Clearly, that is a bug. Fix it.

2 no it wouldn't. You need to be able to join a discussion from a digest, and doing so is very practical if you want to reply to several message at the same time
