ANNELIDA Admin - misdirected unsubscribes

I'd prefer to talk about annelids but:-

There seems to have been a bit of follow-the-leader in the 'unsubscribes' sent
to the ANNELIDA list members rather than the server address. This is of course
ineffectual and a solecism in the eyes of other subscribers. Hence I'm posting
a reminder of how to do it. It should hardly be necessary in a list that
has only been going less than a month. Please DO read and save the
instructions for any list you subscribe to. 

Many people ignore messages without subject headers, unfortunately some
of us don't have that luxury.

If you wish to unsubscribe send the following line in the body of an e-mail to
the *server* address <biosci-server at net.bio.net> 

unsubscribe annelida

For the rest of us -- Send your replies and contributions to the *list*
address <annelida at net.bio.net>. Please check the headers before you send
to be sure your message is going where you want it to. The default for
ANNELIDA is for replies to go to the originator of the message. You must
change the 'to:' line if you intend to make your message public.

By the way the distribution of public messages is exceedingly slow at the
moment. I read Jim Blake's message on the gopher archive hours before I
received it in the mail. I'll check with Bionet whether this can be improved,
or is a "feature" of their server. Meantime a quick look at the gopher will
tell you whether your message is being processed and what else is on its way.

Thanks for listening thus far,
