You are good, Carlos. I was unsubscribed from a list recently - no problem.
There is another similar list that I like that serves as well. I do not
intend to try to resubscribe, because I see no reason to try to impose
myself on someone, where I must have done something contrary to the way they
need things to run. I understand how it is to lead a group of people, and
there can be pulling every which way. Keep up the good work.

Best from,

I agree. I've also been a moderator and if people don't agree or there is a
miscomunication things can get hary but, I must say Carlos, you're doing an
excelent job. You're not coming down hard on someone if they shouldn't have
posted something. People don't like that as we've found out on the other
list smiles. Just carry on the way you're doing and, there seem to be a lot
of people who will give you advice.

Hi Joseph,
I appreciate the offer and I may or may not assign moderators at some point,
but for now I would like the experience of doing it myself before handing
over the responsibility to someone else. Especially since this is my first
time running a mail list. Also, I think choosing a moderator is something
that should be done with caution and careful consideration. Too often I
have seen problems caused when a moderator says something or handles a
particular situation in a manner that conflicts with the opinion of the list
owner. If the correct person is not chosen and the moderator and list owner
do not communicate or are simply not of like minds, I believe this is

I agree with this and I would also like to emphasize keeping
subject lines consistent in general. I.E. If you would like to begin a
different discussion, simply start with a new message. Or if what you have
to say is at least related to the thread to which you are responding, but
may significantly side track the conversation, at least change the subject
to reflect this. I will have to work to follow this rule myself since I
have not always been careful enough in this respect.

Believe me, it is not my desire to cause a problem.
But I am starting to see a problem on this list that frustrated me on the
other list, specifically Blindtech. I am talking about the practice of
directing messages to a specific individual in the subject line. I
respectfully suggest that if anyone wants to direct his message to an
individual that he do so via private email. I say that because it screws up
the sorting of threads badly when the actual subject is preceeded by the
name of an individual.
