asking for patience and understanding
we had no problems with spam, or at least very few until we were picked by the editor. I think that Tara gets the message and as a university professor (= very busy) understands our frustration with the spam. I don't know enough about the listserve stuff to know how to fix the problem, but I have learned the names of many trusted people on the list. I have simply stopped opening anything that did not look familiar or had a 'strange' or inappropriate subject line. I hope that everyone else can be patient and not leave the list. If you do leave the list at least remember that Tara's site www.costumes.org is still a great resource for us all.

I have really enjoyed kurking and reading the solutions you creative guys come up with to the seamstress's problems but if something isn't done about the amount of garbage I'll probably unsubscribe, it'll be my loss too because this site has the potential to be really great!>>Fey>>>>--------------------------------->Do you Yahoo!?>HotJobs - Search new jobs daily now
