John, you certainly have nothing to apologize about
as far as I'm concerned. Being in the hot-seat as list moderator for both
Iris-talk and Iris-photos cannot be an easy task with a bunch of us who are both
a bit roudy and "full of it" when it comes to iris matters. I have come to
envy your diplomatic and thoughtful direction.
My only problem is that I have time on my hands and
spend more than a fair share of time at the computer. I know I have
contributed toward blurring the distinctions between the lists and have made a
commitment to being more thoughtful in the future.
I have both lists set to "no mail" by the methods
you describe. Even with cable hook-up the e-mail setting tended to flood
me out. Limiting the participation to my logging on and going to the
archive sites has rarely limited my viewing of photos and other
attachments. Yahoo's processes seem to strip off some things I want to see
on occasions for Iris-photos but only rarely. The manner I have these
set up leaves me the freedom to deal with the endless spam I receive
via e-mail in a fairly simple manner. Then I can enjoy reading the
posts on the iris sites at my leisure (of which I have nearly unlimited
amounts at present).
