Between Wed 5/31 and Wed 6/7 there were 113 Cohousing-L messages - over twice the average of about 50 / per week (range 10-115). The main reason people unsubscribe is because the number of messages is more than they can handle. There are a number of ways to read cohousing-L discussion with varying amounts of email: 1) regular cohousing-L sub - each message sent individually (average 50 messages per week) 2) digest cohousing-L sub - usually one message per day containing day's messages 3) C-L Summary list - 1 short message PER WEEK with list of message subjects and posters. Read selected messages via the web. 5) Simply browse the messages via the web periodically Most subscribers use digest mode tho it is harder to reply appropriately (most of quoted digest should be deleted and the subject line must be restored). To set digest mode go to the Cohousing-L Info page via: http://cohousing.org/cohousing-L ******* C-L SUMMARY Weekly mailings ******* The Cohousing-L summary mailing list (C-L-sum) is the most recently added option. This separate list sends one message per week with a summary of the week's activity and serves as a reminder that messages themselves can be read via with ones web browser. To see a sample summary go to http://lists.cohousing.org/archives/c-l-sum/msg00031.html I expect C-L-sum subscribers will not get messages Cohousing-L messages via email - that is they will not be subscribed to cohousing-L or preferably will have a NO MAIL MODE subscription to Cohousing-L. (The latter allows them to post to cohousing-L most easily. Replying to Cohousing-L posts appropriately in this case must be done by starting a new message on the same subject and maybe copy and pasting a selected quote from the message on the web.) For more information about C-L-Sum and links to subscribe, go to: http://L.cohousing.org/c-l-sum.htm Getting assistance. Forms to subscribe and set mail modes etc can be confusing, tho I'd prefer people make changes themselves if they can, I am happy to assist with setting up no mail mode subs, unsubscribing folks etc. Email subscription help requests to Fred: fholson [at] cohousing.org PLEASE, DO NOT SEND REQUESTS FOR HELP WITH YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE LIST. I.E. DO NOT send subscription help requests to cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org If done , such messages go to all other subscribers and are annoying. Fred, listserv manager
