Default Yahoo Groups

Just a heads up for those that do a lot of research. I've noticed that many posts for classic mechanics point to Yahoo groups which is shutting down mid-December:

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/groups/SLN...pressions=true

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/8...nently-removed

Probably not a huge cause for alarm since it launched in 2001, but unless we can rely on WayBack or data scrapers we'll soon lose this as a source of first-hand info for the early EQ years.

I downloaded all EQ Yahoo groups I could find and put them here in this GitHub repo. Also has dumps of every EQ website I've used from Wayback.
