Re: What happened

Carolyn Arnold

I told my husband this morning, I was going to have to decide which to
eliminate - e-mail overload - could be Blind Tech. I haven't been to check
it for a day or so, so I'll see how relevant it is to my situation.

Best from,

Lol, TechTalk is my 11th list, granted at least 3 of them are nearly
inactive ... it gets a bit hectic toward the end of the week and over the
weekend when I'm out trying to earn a nickel and don't have time to wade
through all those emails ...

I can certainly see Flor's point and it is really up to the individual to
decide to how many lists they are subscribed and if it is too much. LOL see
my previous comments about not personally subscribing to many lists at once.

Hi Flor,
All these things are a personal preference. It can be looked how you
mean. But those of us who are going through hundreds and hundreds of
messages, with an email client that supports no filters, this can be
tedious. I just deal with it, though, I know how life could be easier.
But then again, why do I subscribe, if I can't do it? So yeah, its
really a personal preference, in my opinion.

What myou may consider unnecessary, may be considered needful by the
poster who believes that they are in urgent need of help, or where the
problem being written about is a difficult one to solve unless or
until one has sought differing perspectives on how it might be solved.
(Think of how it was with a kernel32 error preventing a program from
running Easy enough to fix when you know the answer to it which fits
tyour symtpoms precisely.
if you don't know, you can't run this program on which your happiness
with your computer depends. .) And you may nopt be able to describe
the situation accurately enough yourself.

Hi Joseph,
My nightmare is to delete the exact same thing 6 damn times. And,
when the person sends something in response, they send it to like 3
lists. So that makes it 8 more messages, than necessary.

For me, the worst nightmare is when someone cross-posts the same
message to multiple lists (I did ask people on the lists I moderate to
not cross-post, or if they have to do that, either use BCC or ask the
mods first).

Here's the thing. If I send something to this list, and the BlindTech
list, but I only put one list into the to field at the time, there's
literally literally nothing the admins can do. If there are more than
one lists at the time, that's different.

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
moderation and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the
fact that there are more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross
posting all over the place.
It is not unusual to see the same message no fewer than five or six
times on various lists. And I hope that those cross posts do not show
up here.
prompts a question. Is there a utility which will somehow delete
cross posted messages? Setting up filters to do this would be a huge

Welcome to the list Cristsbal. Indeed it is active. We currently
have about 98 members.

LOL let's just say that I had a difference of opinion in the art of
list management with the owner/moderators of BlindTech.

Wow, I don't' check the lists for a couple of days and apparently
everything goes poopoo.
So is this list actually active?
All sorts of drama on BlindTech.
