The 'owner' of a Yahoo! group can configure it so that attachments are 
rejected. Since infections come as attachments (unwisely opened), such a 
group can be safe by design.

Among the advantages of a Yahoo! group (or a similar one offered by 
others) is that it provides space for files, for photos, and for links. 
The file space was recently increased to 100 MB, ample for any need I 
could see for our communication here and subject to control by the owner 
and moderator(s). A major advantage is the search function through the 
archives, though admittedly that is of little value until the group has 
been functioning for some time.
