Re: A very important administration message that all members should read

I don't think I can do it, but I don't think your account has been hacked nor your GMail account.  One spoofed message was sent yesterday in another list member's name.  I suspected that more members might be spoofed over time.  I've seen this sort of thing before on lists where the spoofer spoofs one person first and then expands to others.  Whatever the case, if the spoofing doesn't stop and is disruptive and offensive enough, as I said, I'll put the list under moderation, which will result in inconvenience but will stop the spoofing.  Then, I'll take the list offr moderation after a number of days to see if the problem has stopped but I won't hesitate to reinstate moderation again.  Let's hope it doesn't require this sort of drastic action and I'll monitor the list closely most of the time to keep delayed message delivery from becoming more than a minor problem while the list is moderated. 
So, I hope members are patient if this is necessary and remain on the list. 
All legitimate messages will get to the list and a lot of the time without being delayed long.

I tried to change my password, which I have done in the past.  But it
is no longer accessible.
