- Here are directions from Maura:
(By the way, your shift key isn't working correctly)
Subject: [S-R] Please read! Directions!

Pardon my venting here a bit :) I'm a bit baffled why this list seems to
have so many problems with people sending unsubscribe commands to the list...
it is NOT that difficult and this is a situation which seems to occur every
week lately! I do realize that the recent change to the yahoo administration
maybe part of it, but those of you who have been on the list for awhile know
this is an on-going problem. I send reminders, I have the directions posted
on our homepage (which not 1/3 of you seem to have visited by the page
counts..) I just don't know what else to do. For the record, PLEASE bookmark
the list's page at yahoo
This is the page that you would need to go to in order to unsubscribe/change
the way you getmail/read list mail from another computer etc. It is also the
page you can give anyone who wishes to join this list. Be sure to tell them
that they will have to sign in on yahoo groups to join. Again, the directions
are on the page -- if they are not a member there should be prompts that come
up. Honestly, I don't mean to fuss, but I can't understand why this is such a
problem, and it puts the burden on me to constantly either explain things
(which gets boring) or handle things manually because people just won't do
things the right way.
Thank you for your cooperation in this.
PLEASE bookmark that page.
