     To frustrated unsubscribers--
     If you have www access, the web page at has a 
     handy form to allow subscribing and unsubscribing to the distribution 
     list without having to figure it all out.  It also explains how to do 
     it by email.  And it's a good web site, of course.
     One warning that might apply to a few people-- your email provider may 
     provide you with some sort of convenient address alias to use, that 
     isn't the "real" return address attached to your outgoing mail.  If 
     you subscribe using your alias, the iac distribution list may then 
     reject your postings, because they seem to come from someone other 
     than the address that subscribed.   If this happens, the list will 
     return your posting to you, telling you who it thought it came from, 
     which will probably look sort of like you, but be a lot longer and 
     more confusing.  Unsubscribe using your alias and resubscribe as this 
     other address, and you'll be postable.  That's the theory, anyway.  
     This message is the test-- if you aren't reading this, it's not true.  
      >>>But remember what the new address was, because you need to give 
     the *same address* to unsubscribe via the form<<<<.  Aaah, here we go 
     On the other hand, using a non-postable alias is an *excellent* way to 
     avoid making a fool of yourself with dumb impulsive postings.
