for those users still hades-bent on sending un-sub requests
(to anywhere BUT the list itself, thanks! (hmm - where /does/
(`lost' e-mail go?) ... read on:
IF the list_admins for this list have followed tradition, if
not required protocol for serious practitioners, they should
be reachable for all administrivial purposes just by us
subscribers sending our un-sub requests to any of the following
`alias' addresses (at least one of which should exist):
<firstname.lastname@example.org> note subtle
try the first one first, etc ...
if you don't receive back a reply suggesting a bounce, or
other similar message, you /might/ assume your mail has reached
its intended destination - a human list admin - or the owner/s ...
just give it an overnight, or even a couple days, since your
un-sub action will be performed manually ...
and as mentioned so many times already, this will save the entire
list of public users real or imaginary time wasted reading or,
as implied numerous times earlier, even /deleting/ so many
un-wanted* messages ...
additional suggestion: there happens to exist on the cg
web site a link to a long-standing (well, c1995) memo
on the subject of net-etiquette, aka: `netiquette,' which,
in my opinion, still warrants occasional re-reading even
by people like myself who have been using e-mail since
the 1970's ... yikes!
hastily, but sincerely,
* but wait! there's more to mail management than deleting!
did you all know YOU can cause your mail handling software to
automagically sort your incoming mail, putting all your cg
messages into a folder of its own /without your having to lift
a typing finger/ or, for us cts/cfs/rsi/etc sufferers using
speech recognition input, to even utter a few spoken words?
if you're an old timer or purist- think _mailproc_, and if
you're new to all this - just dig a little into your modern
webmail applications files and do a little reading on the
subject: mail processing or mail management ...
it's never too late to learn many things, and to deal
patiently with the lesser of life's challenges.
