Back on August 3rd MAM sent the following inquiry to the list:
> What's ADS, svp?

This inquiry is rather cryptic. It might mean "What's ADS, s'il vous
plait?" ADS is a reference to the American Dialect Society. My
email name on this list has an ADS prefix because it is a specialized
email name which  is primarily dedicated to ADS related communication.
