Well, number 1, I am not a "Mom", in fact, I'm not even a woman. I am the 
list administrator.(otherwise known as a "List Mom")  I keep the peace, I 
maintain the list, and I have the final say. It's a dirty job and 
sometimes you have to be tough.  I define "appropriate behavior" as 
thinking for ones self.  I am not trying to be harsh, but mailing lists 
and the Internet in general are not brand new anymore.  99.9% of mailing 
lists work the same way. If you are confused, simply send a email to 
requests@listname.com and place the word "help" in the body of the 
message.  This will send back a complete list of instructions.  Also to 
unsubscribe you simply send a message to requests@listname.com with the 
words "unsubscribe listname" in the body of the message.

This is not new.  This is standard stuff here.  Every other list works 
about the same.  You can even view instructions/etiquette on this list at 
http://mccoypottery.com/mailinglists/index.html

Also, when you sign up for this list you get a set of instructions 
emailed directly to you on how to subscribe/unsubscribe ask for help, 
etc...

Again as I expressed a few days ago there are around 600 people on this 
list and the majority seem quite capable of thinking for themselves.  
Again, I understand if you have a difficulty, it's ok.. But please email 
me directly: listmom@mccoypottery.com and not the list.  It is rude to 
email a mailing list directly and ask to be "removed." Not only is it 
rude, but it displays a complete lack of self reliance and an inability 
to reason, think, read, and follow directions.  Save yourself the shame.  
Email the list mom, not the list when you want to be unsubscribed or are 
too lazy to figure out how to do it for yourself.



Regards,

The List Mom
