Hi fellow PICers and Jory,

I sent E-Mail to Eric Thomas, the guy who wrote the listserv software, about
our problem. His repsonse is above. Basically, we can make the list private
so only those who are subcribed can post message to the list. While this does
not prevent someone from subscribing and then SPAMming, it does mean
they have to try a little harder.

I am all for it. If you agree, send a message to Jory Bell (the list
maintainer) and
if you want, a yes/no to me. I will keep a count of number ayes/naes if
anyone cares.

cheers,
eric

Absolutely yes!  I'm getting *really* tired of this magazine
subscription shit.  It's getting so old, I don't even bother
to mail-bomb the people involved any more.

[sorry this is going to the whole list]

I'm in favor of making the list private, provided that those who are not
on the list receive a "helpful" bounce message [i.e. they get a message which,
if they actually read it, will tell them how to subscribe].

Err.. yes, I am on as TakeThisOuTmicrochipEraseMEspamspam_OUTrhanna.demon.co.uk, but I post
from RemoveMEadrianspamTakeThisOuTrhanna.demon.co.uk and would not want piclist email
going to my "adrian" address as it would clutter my mailbox.

I suspect private would therefore cause me a problem.
