Subject: The PROBE Command Explanation
With the date for signing my retirement papers looming, I am, of
necessity, reassessing aspects of my life, especially those with
One such involves what I pay for my Listserv license. Without further
explanation, I am about to be attempting to include a PROBE command in
the listserv header. What this means is that you will be require once a
year to affirm by replying to a message you receive from listserv that
you still wish to continue to subscribe to this listserv. The purpose
for including this command is that it will enable me to "prune out"
members who have been listed with the NOMAIL options but who are no
longer interested in being continued on the membership list or whose
email account no longer exists.
I hope that you will not mind having to take a few moments every year to
acknowledge that you wish to continue to be a subscriber to this list.
My apologies if you do mind; if this is the case, you need do nothing
and you will be removed from the membership list.
