Dear List Members:

This is a List Administration message, please read this.

In the past several days, we have had more than one user 
of this list use an anti-spam service that has resulted in 
every member of this list recieving notices to confirm 
that messages posted to the list are not spam.

This is unacceptable in several ways. First, in my opinion 
it is not up to the sender of any message to confirm that 
the message they send is spam or not; it is the 
responsibility of the receiver to determine what they 
consider spam and filter their own messages accordingly. 
More importantly, the confirmation messages themselves 
could be considered a form of spam. While not commercial 
advertising, and therefore technically not spam, they 
never the less are annoying unsolicited messages.

This list is vehemently anti-spam, and it is good that 
list members are trying various ways to reduce or 
eliminate spam. Unfortunately in trying to do a good thing 
some members are inadvertently doing a bad thing too.

I have no choice but to state that anyone who uses an 
anti-spam service and does not properly configure that 
service to correctly allow list traffic through will be 
removed from the list until such time as list messages are 
properly handled by the service.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding about 

Ron Allen
List Owner
