Re: UNSUBSCRIBE - Why the list

Psychoacoustics is not my primary field. I find everything on this list to be of value. I retain about 400 postings per year. Each year, I repost about 40 - 60 postings to the [more general] electroacoustic [music] community, passing information and ideas on to another up to 750 [or more] people who work in the cognate discipline of electroacoustic studies [high art electroacoustics / composition included].

Job posting and conference announcements here inform large numbers of undergraduates as to the reach of the field of sound study. For items which do not have sustained interest, I find the DELETE key is quick and reliable.
