Re: Testing list changes.

Not really.  My "official" address is isely@pobox.com but that isn't my
ISP.  It's a forwarder.  That way I can shift ISPs without having to fix
e-mail subsriptions all the time.  However there is *no* way I can
really post from pobox because that is just a forwarder.

However something *has* to be done.  Half of the spam I receive is now
coming from this list.  I've about had it.  The fact is that this list
is going to die if something isn't done.
