Subject Mailing List Subscription Attempts
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:51:26 GMT
John, let us know here if you still have trouble subscribing to ooo-users.

I notice that the ooo-users list, and the one for Japanese, seem to have 
stronger e-mail filtering so that even subscription requests can be bounced 
and not even seen by a moderator to accept or reject what the robot finds 
suspicious.

That may require adjustment.

 - Dennis

PS: My use of digital signatures when posting here solves an indirect problem. 
I can type normally and the signature process will make hard line-wraps to my 
text.  So I can still do my composing with full text flow working.  (It won't 
change my top-posting, though.)

To Dennis: Yes, but following the instructions from the message just
before this one, I am trying again!:-)
