No. You need to be included and then aggregated. Yahoo used to be more
selective than Google, who experiences some recent embarrassment for being
too lenient and permitting the inclusion of non-news and promotional sites.

It's not spamming. PHP SoftGroups made good contributions in other threads.

talks about. Let's smoke the pipes of peace.
