From http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/groups/activity/activity-03.html :
"* Attempt to post locally to a remote group: A member tried to post to a
group that isn't hosted at Yahoo! Groups. Yahoo! Groups has some groups
that merely archive messages of groups hosted on other services. You must
post to the actual system that hosts that group."
In the case of the list-managers group, they have archives going back to
1992! It is inconceivable that they have been members that long :) so
there must be an archive "harvester" that Yahoo's developers actively
unleashed on lists like this one.
Nevertheless, there may be a "collector" address presently enrolled in list-
managers to keep their archives current. It would be a shame if that
membership entry were to get lost :)
