Sorry, I didn't notice that the messages were sent to the list and not to me directly. Below is the general information on the list, including info on how to remove yourself. Best, DAn. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear List - Here's a reminder of some administration details for the AUDITORY email list. Messages for the entire list should be sent to AUDITORY@xxxxxxxx (case doesn't matter). The current "anti-spam" procedure is for the server to send a message back to you to confirm posting. It will also reject messages if it doesn't recognize the "From:" address in your message as exactly matching one of the list recipients. Regrettably,this results in a lot of false alarms; if you have trouble posting, please just let me know so I can fix your address (or you can do it yourself as described below). The biographical database as well as an archive of postings are available on the web. An experimental interface is available at: http://www.auditory.org/audindex.html This file is sensitive from a privacy point of view, so I request that you do *not* make any links to it. That way we can keep it out of Web indexes, and it will only be accessed by those who know the address. You will also notice that almost all the email addreses on the site have been rendered with "(at)" replacing the ampersand in another attempt to outwit automated email address harvesting. Members can edit their own database entries (including changing the email address used, or inactivating/reactivating the account) via a web page. There is a randomly-generated 'password' required; clicking the link at the bottom of the page displaying your record (accessed via the audindex link above) will send the edit URL, including password, to your email address as registered on the list. Alternatively, I am happy to generate the URL and mail it to you directly. One option to reduce the burden on your mailbox from AUDITORY is to switch to the "DIGEST" format, which instructs the listserver to send you at most one message per day, containing all that day's postings. You can switch to DIGEST format by selecting the "Daily digest" option at the bottom of the database entry web page described above. Note, however, that DIGEST mode tends to mess up any messages with complex encoding (e.g. HTML text with font stylings), so it may not be as useful as it appears. The options also include a choice to have all individual messages prefixed by [AUDITORY] when they are delivered to your mail account. The home page for the list is: http://www.auditory.org/ which includes links to the postings archives, as well a few other resources. (The postings archives and the member-list are also available for download via HTTP as plain files in the baselevel directory under member-list, postings-1993.gz, postings-1994.gz etc.) There are currently two styles of archive available on the site, termed "classic" and "threaded". The "classic" index shows all messages in chronological order, like a conventional mail reader. The "threaded" index uses the MHonArc package to convert messages to web pages and arranges them into threads based on their subjects etc. MHonArc does a nicer job of converting message formats to HTML pages than classic mode, which is confused by non-ASCII mail. To be removed from the list, you can use the web interface described above. You can suspend your receipt of AUDITORY messages temporarily by switching your subscription to inactive, then using the same page to switch it back to active at some later date. New subscriptions can be initiated via the web at: http://www.auditory.org/dpwe-bin/audform Alternatively, these or any other admin matters can be sent to me at: auditory-request@xxxxxxxx which is simply forwarded to me at dpwe@xxxxxxxx . -- DAn Ellis <dpwe@xxxxxxxx> http://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/ Dept. of Elec.
