Politics of Yahoo! Groups

Yahoo! Groups : DNBAM Calendar

So I just found out that “club” settings are customized depending on which category you put your “club” in. Defend Need Blind Admissions is under Colleges and Universities -> Minnesota. For College groups, Yahoo! provides the following options:

Anniversary
Appointment
Bill Payment
Birthday
Breakfast
Call
Chat
Class
Club Event
Concert
Dinner
Graduation
Happy hour
Holiday
Interview
Lunch
Meeting
Movie
Net event
Other
Party
Performance
Reunion
Sports Event
Travel
TV Show
Vacation
Wedding

Hopefully, these categories have been based on what most college groups in the U.S. announce frequently via their mailing lists and such. It’s such a sad picture. I don’t think I have ever used any category except “meeting” and “performance”. What the fuck does a “public debate” fit into? Should “public debate” be a “meeting”?

Bah.
