This does not work from outside the US.  (It took me and an owner of a list
some time calling each other crazy before I figured out what was going on)

You do not get to see the Market Preferences line which is below the second
address.  To set your preferences go change your settings to English-US then
go back and you will see the set market preferences line.  You can then go
back and set your  language preference.

Looks like there is some rule in the US where they cannot spam citizens but
people from elsewhere are fair game

Hi Folks,

A thoughtful list administrator on another Yahoo groups I subscribe
to sent out this note regarding YOUR Yahoo "marketing preferences." I
checked, and the instructions are accurate. Perhaps this explains why
I seemed to be getting so much spam recently. I just rest my
preferences, we'll see if that helps.
