Aroiders,

One of the group brought it my attention that each time you post to
Aroid-L, you're being sent an e-mail from the list saying "your post has
been held for the moderator". Although Aroid-L has always been moderated,
the previous listservers didn't remind you of it each time you posted.

Since that's basically a wasted e-mail - there's really nothing for you to
do with it but delete it - I'm going to turn that off. But I wanted to
warn everyone first so that those of you who have gotten used to seeing it
won't think your posts aren't getting here.

Steve

Well, a good one would. But I try.

It does save you guys getting even more solicitations for (a) stocks which
are about to double or triple or quadruple in price, (b) "enhancement"
products of various kinds for both genders, (c) pleas for help from the
remarkable number of misfortunate but strangely trusting people who have
large sums of money they want to send you for safekeeping and just need
your bank account number, (d) viruses and worms, (e) pictures of things
that are definitely not aroids, (f) cheap pharmaceuticals (no prescription
needed), and (g) low-rate mortgages. Among other things.
