  Administrivia re Amorph. bulbifer offer
From: Steve Marak <samarak at arachne.uark.edu> on 1998.03.27 at 15:32:30(1986)
We've had enough responses on this to justify a reminder to the list, I
think ...

Please remember that messages from Aroid-L are set such that if you reply
to them your reply will go to the entire list, not just to the person who
sent the message, unless you do something to change that. (What you have
to do depends on your mail package, but there's always a way.)

So, if you reponded to Scott Lucas' Amorph. bulbifer offer using the
"reply" function of your mailer, your reply probably came to Aroid-L
instead of to Scott. We (the listowners) always try to forward any mail
that seems to us to have been misdirected to the list back to whoever was
the intended recipient, and of course we'll do that in this case. But it
does slow things down (we have to manually delete the message from the
list, then extract the original note and forward it), so if you haven't
received an acknowledgement from Scott, that may be why - if it came to
the list, he hasn't seen it yet.

For those who haven't yet replied to Scott but intend to, his e-mail
address is: htbg@ilhawaii.net


Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
