Fix Advanced Search on messages so that moderators can actually take action on them.
I find it completely frustrating that you can search messages, but then the only check box you are given is "show results only from my messages." And how does that ever help anybody?
I have a bajillion spam messages to get rid of the one very considerate button called "Check all" with a Delete beside it would solve ALL my problems right now.
It would also be nice to just "delete all messages from this user" but at the least, a powerful Advanced search function that wasn't just intended for lookie-loos would be a minimum requirement.

I sent an email to a Yahoo group and within seconds the screen noted that my email was awaiting moderation . That is the last I have heard . Is there a way to find out if the moderator has decided to publish it to the group or has permanently placed my email in limbo ? Is there any tracking mechanism by which a group member can retrieve his email from group's owners or moderator ? I did not save my message before sending it and now would like to retrieve a copy . Is there any requirement in this digital age that groups preserve digital messages ? Perhaps history has no interest in these activities . Alas , they are but a whiff of disappearing smoke ; of no use to man or beast .
