A recent mishap on this list has finally prmpted me to get around to doing
a couple of things I've been meaning to do for quite some time now.  First off,
this list is going to have posting restricted to list members only.  This
should not adversely affect most of you, but those of you who are on the
list as when the from address in your mail is really more like
zd99@akjkaj.frobble.prot may have to wait a while until I get your address in
the allowed list and forward your mail.  Once that address is added to the
allowed file, no sweat.

Secondly, any and all addresses will only be allowed to subscribe to
the digest version. users on the regular list have been moved to the
digest list.  Basically, the subscribers account for about 5 to 6
percent of the list memberships, but about 25 to 30 percent of the many
hundreds of error messages I get each day is from  Obviously, the
easist thing for me to do would be to just refuse any and all mail from an aol
address, but I don't want to punish all the folks due to a handful of twits.
So aol people will still get the mail, but only once a day, and I won't get
back an error message for each and every posting to the list from wayward aol
folks, just one from each issue of the digest.
