My opinion is that if you have a real need to switch hosts, then do so.  I
have been one of the activists about members sending unnecessarily large
images. That is not a problem at the moment so that is not an issue. I can
live with the image sizes even though I have a real slow connection.

On the other hand, it would sure be nice to get rid of the yahoo garbage
that we receive with each email.
