(OPE-L) subscription problems

I discovered yesterday that listserv had involuntarily unsubscribed
NINE members!  I don't know when this happened since the protocol
of listserv no longer notifies 'owners' when there are unsubscriptions.

Those who were unsubscribed by listserv without requesting it have now
been re-subscribed.  In the future please follow the following

a) if you don't receive list mailings,  go to our archives at
http://ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/ope/archive  to see if there
have been any mailings that you didn't receive.  If the answer is
"yes", contact me off-list.

b) [as an alternative to a)] if you are not sure of your subscription
status, send a message to listserv@sus.csuchico.edu which reads
(only) REVIEW OPE-L.    If listserv sends you the "REVIEW
OPE-L" sheet, then you know you are subscribed.  If listserv
responds by sending you a message that you are not a subscriber
to OPE-L, send me a message off-list and I will take care of it.

If listserv indicates in the "REVIEW OPE-L" that you _are_ a subscriber
but you  _still_ aren't receiving postings, send a message to
listserv@sus.csuchico.edu  which reads (only) SET OPE-L MAIL

c) if you want to unsubscribe, please contact me off-list so that I know
that's what you want.

d) if you want temporarily not to receive postings, do _not_ send an
unsubscription command to listserv.  Instead, send a message to
listserv@sus,csuchico which reads (only) SET OPE-L NoMail
(When you then wish to resume receiving postings, send a
SET OPE-L MAIL message to listserv.)

btw, we have never involuntarily removed any subscriber in list
history -- over 8 years(very few Internet lists can make this claim.
If you have any questions about the above, please contact me off-list
at Gerald_A_Levy@msn.com and/or glevy@pratt.edu

Please save this message for future reference.

In solidarity, Jerry
