You may want to look it up using bulletin board method instead using
email lists.  More information, look it up at
<> .  I think this will beneficial for us to use.
We can separate the different topics, countries, and many more.  Also,
we can use search to find what we need to review.  Hope this helps...

SignWriting List

June 21, 2006


Hello Cherie and Everyone!

I believe Cherie posted a message saying that not all my messages
arrived on the List.


Funny thing...then Cherie's message did not make it to the List either!


The reason I know Cherie tried to post something, is because I am the
manager of the List, and I can see when new messages have been posted
before they arrive...but I have no control over what happens
next...usually they will post to the List within minutes after I see it


But now something weird is happening...I see the messages coming, but
then they never arrive...


That is not good!


We have been so lucky all these years with an excellent List, so I will
pursue this tomorrow...


I believe this is connected to spammers and also to old email addresses
that are creating too many returns...


Recently, I was spammed just was like a flood...I was
being attacked by abnormal amounts of spam...Although Macs cannot get
hurt by viruses written to hurt PCs, I put on my anti-virus software
anyway, only to find that it was a Windows virus being sent to my
Mac....a river of email with a virus that couldn't hurt my


I am worried maybe something like that happened to our List...recently
more strangers with non-SignWriting messages have tried to come through
onto the List, and I have deleted them before they could get
through...messages about...well you know...


No matter what happens, we will always have a SW List...I will not let
this continue!


Smile...Thanks for your patience everyone!


And please keep writing to the List, but I would suggest right now, that
you should send me a copy of the same message too, if you do not see it
post...then I can try to re-post it...Many thanks!


Val ;-)
