Hi there Videolibbers,

Please don't leave me in the dark anymore. I see all these requests to get
off a non-existing mailing list sent to Then a
gentlemen suggests that you e-mail instead - but many people
requesting removal never seem to have requested being on a mailing list.
How many of these people have visited the website? I'm certainly
not going to after this... My obvious question is why is all of this
e-mail/requests going to the videolist serv so that we all can see it?
There are a couple of sites on the Internet that one can go to to
report/cancel "junk" mail or span if contacting the website doesn't work.
Is the videolist serv domain address being confused/hidden within the domain or what? Or are people just hitting the e-mail "reply
button inadvertantly? I'm not being accusing - I just want to know what's
happening so that I might be able to tell patrons/other videolibbers about
what's going on. confused in south Dakota - Jim Scholtz.
