RE: [art_education] This group
- What happened? I don't understand how this Spam thing works (don't know a whole lot about it because at work, we have filters). I like this group. I learn alot from other teachers. I appreciate being a part of it.From: email@example.com [firstname.lastname@example.org] on behalf of Ken [kenroar@...]

Subject: [art_education] This group
Art education members,
I just checked and 441 members left the group today because of the spam issues from one member. This is rather shocking to me that this many would leave the group because of spam coming from one member (that I later deleted).
The only way to ensure that spam never gets posted to the group is if I moderate every post in this list. This means that there will be a significant delay after posts get sent out. Is this what you want? It is frustrating to run a list like this only to have a fourth of them leave when a spam or two make it to the list.
- Sending much appreciation and thanks to Ken for his professionalism and patience. Moderating any group is not easy.....Thank you for continuing to allow us all to glean ideas from other art educators whom we would otherwise never be fortunate enough to discuss things with in person. I know I speak for the group here. Thank you!

- Hi Ken and All,
I highly recommend reading posts online. It is easy to follow threads and keeps your inbox from filling up. Also, if you are away from the list for awhile you can easily catch up with topics that pertain to your age group and interests. I am sure many people dropped this list because they signed up looking for prefabricated lessons, rather than authentic discussions about art education that often happen here. I appreciate being able to interact with other art teachers through this list, thank you Ken for your continued work.
