[time-nuts] Administrivia -- non-subscriber postings

We've been getting more and more messages submitted from addresses not 
subscribed to the list.  The vast majority of them are spam, and it's 
becoming time consuming to go in and delete them.

So, effective shortly I'm going to change the list configuration to 
discard posts from non-subscribers rather than hold them for me to 
review.  I *think* but am not certain that I can configure things to 
send the submitter a note saying that they need to post from a 
subscribed address.

So, once again, please remember that the list will only accept messages 
from subscribed email addresses.  If you subscribed as jimbob at ieee.org, 
but your messages appear to come from j.r.dobbs at downhome.net, you won't 
be able to post.  To get around this, you can create an additional 
subscription for the "post-from" address and use the web options page to 
set that address to "nomail" so you won't receive multiple copies of 

Speaking of subscriptions, time-nuts is now up to nearly 200 members. 
I'm amazed that the list has grown to this extent.  While we've 
generally remained a very collegial group (the occasional leap-second 
discussion notwithstanding!), it's worthwhile to keep in mind that your 
postings here are being read by a substantial number of people from 
around the world.

Happy holidays to all.  I'll be raising a toast* at 31/12/2005 23:59:60. 
  How about you?
