Jim while I sympathise, I think your anger is misdirected.  Having been
a member
of the lists for over 6 years now I think mark does an excelent job of
the list up and running.  We have to remeber that this is done without
renumeration, out of the goodness of his heart.  Mark has made a
decision to make
his life easier based on the fact that an AOL address is apx 5 times
more likely
to generate an error than any of the other providers out there.  The
fault is 
not Marks, nor is it yours, it belongs to AOL.  This however leaves you
with several

        1) You can complain to Mark, but it's not his fault, and it probably
        do any good.

        2) You can accept the list version

        3) You can unsubscribe (Please people don't do this)

        4) You can switch providers

        5) You can TELL AOL TO FIX THEIR PROBLEM.  Remember you pay good
        money to them for their service!!!

My personal choice would be items 4 or 5, but you must make the
best of luck.
