Q1
How do I subscribe?

See the mailing list page. If you are unable to subscribe, it could be due to your e-mail system mangling your e-mail addresaddress.

If you send an e-mail to the list owner to subscribe you to the list, be prepared to wait until the owner has an opportunity to add you to the list.

Q2
Why won't people answer my question?

It could be one of any of the following answers:

...

  • "help" in the subject line (we know you need help by writing in the first place)
  • plz or please in the subject line. We already know you need help.
  • ALL CAPS IN THE SUBJECT LINE. (Sorry for anyone emailing from a mainframe)
  • Do not place !! (more than 2!) in the subject line. The number of exclamation points has no relation to anyone's interest in answering the question. In fact - it has a higher chance at being ignored.
  • Your e-mail has a return receipt. You don't need to know I got the message.
  • Select posters who have consistently displayed no desire to research before posting a question.

Q3
How do I unsubscribe?

See the mailing list page. If you are unable to unsubscribe, it could be due to your e-mail system mangling your e-mail address or you have subscribed under an alias. In that case, maybe this thread will help.

If you send an e-mail to the list owner to remove you from the list, be prepared to continue receiving more e-mails from the lists until the owner has an opportunity to remove you from the list.
