I have never There has been little traffic on Cohousing-L in the last few days. Tho between the message Eleanor cited and hers there were two messages: (And I see no problem with her sub) Aug 13 Gabriel36 [at] aol.com (936) Re:Northwest Conference Aug 15 Zev Paiss (1,599) Coho Network Needs Special Help Aug 16 Eleanor Chandler (1,365) Junk email >From time to time volume of the list does drop off tho some of us see this as a welcome breather tho not too long ago I got suspicious and posted about a lull :) CONCERNING JUNK MAIL. I dont think Cohousing-L is connected to any recent junk mail tho the only way to tell (possibly) is if folks forward suspected mail (including complete headers to me. If a pattern develops (e.g. multiple subscribers got the same email ) Cohousing-L has two primary safegards againts spam and junk mail. The list of subscribers is not available via command to the listserver (it will only tell you how many subscribers there are). Email messages distributed by cohousing-L must be sent from a subscribed address, otherwise they are "rejected". However if you post to cohousing-L your address is distributed to the 500 or so subscribers as well as goes into the archives and is thus publically available. This has not been a problem to date that I am aware of. Fred, cohousing-L list manager -- Fred H.
