'List-wide question: Mini-FAQ {How to unsubscribe} '
1998\11\13@161655 by Mark Willis

I post a mini-FAQ monthly to another mailing list;  It mainly contains
just a little reminder of how to behave on the mailing list
(Ettiquette), and the rest of the thing is about the 5 ways to
unsubscribe from that list...

 Is this a good idea here, as well?  It's subject line sez
"[Service-Dogs] Mini-FAQ, Rev. Oct 20 1998", so when revised it's
obvious what it is & how recent it is (& the experts can easily ignore
it on sight <G>)

 Mainly offering the idea, I could post something like this monthly,
this is a quick slash job on the Service-Dogs list & not necessarily
accurate in any way!  <G>  It seems to sorta partially reduce "Please
Unscribe Me" traffic, of course that mailing list IS different...

 Probably mainly a question for Jory?

There one ways that works to get off the list.  DO NOT post to the
list.  This might get you off, but is the worst way to do it; A post to
the list goes to all subscribers, is VERY slow and gets everyone angry
with you.  If %administrator% misses seeing it (and she may not read all
of every post), you don't get off the list.

Do NOT post to Mark requesting an unsubscribe.  Mark CANNOT unsubscribe
you. He will simply delete your request.

 Post to:


from the address at which you are subscribed containing nothing but

unsubscribe PICList

in the first line of the message, from the address at which you are
subscribed.  This is automatically executed and is the fastest method.
The message must contain the exact words "unsubscribe PICList", no
other spelling works.

 If you are trying to unsubscribe from an address different from the
one you subscribed from, you must include that original address like
this:  on the first line of the message:
unsubscribe PICList <oldaddress>

 If you have difficulties, or do not understand what to do, send an
e-mail message to:

%administrator% (I'm not sure if Jory et al want questions coming in!)

and they/he will try to help you.  Do tell her you want help with the
PICList as they may run more than one list!


 This list is for the specific purpose of providing a forum about the
use, learning about, safety with, and enjoyment of MicroChip PICs. Other
support "Glue" chips are acceptable off-topic subjects, to some extent.

 Commercial posts, flaming, spamming, virus warnings, etc. do not
belong in this mailing list, and posting same could result in
%administrator% removing you from the list.  Humor happens here, and is
welcome so long as it doesn't result in bodily harm from too many list
readers falling out of their chairs, and so long as it's kept in
reasonable bounds. Humor isn't the purpose of the list, but the good
laugh provided (relevant to PICs especially) is very welcome on

 Posting messages to the list is restricted to subscribers, who are
defined as anyone posting with a logon name and address identical to one
in the list of subscribers.  You cannot post to the list either from a
different address or if you are unsubscribed.

 This Mini-FAQ, approved by %administrator%, is posted by Mark Willis
monthly (early in the month), to help %administrator% out.  Suggested

 Mark will post this with this EXACT same title [unless revised, then
the revision date will change] to help keep the list uncluttered with
"unsubscribe" requests, and will e-mail it to anyone on request.
