Typo in email addresses, fixed.

   Several people with mail addresses have had problems with the list, the problem seems to be with the
   mailing list server.  I got this just now:

   | Subject: You have been unsubscribed from the Discussion mailing list
   | From: discussion-bounces at
   | To: ams at
   | Date: Tue, 09 Mar 2010 09:00:03 +0100

   Before that I got messages like these:

   | From: discussion-request at
   | To: ams at
   | Subject: confirm 36bc7d617c7cc483300e6723019d829964942b7b
   | Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2010 09:00:01 +0100
   | Your membership in the mailing list Discussion has been disabled due
   | to excessive bounces The last bounce received from you was dated
   | 16-Feb-2010.  You will not get any more messages from this list until
   | you re-enable your membership.  You will receive 2 more reminders like
   | this before your membership in the list is deleted.

   But trying to resubscribe I get a message stating that I am already
   subscribe.  Ward tried contacting the list owner, but there was no
   reply, can someone please look into this problem and resolve it?

   | I have also received that message and re-subscribed. I asked for more
   | details on the list - with a direct reply to the list administrator.
   | He did not respond.
   | All those messages were sent out on the 23rd, but referred to the last
   | bounce being received on the 16th of February.
   | That smells like a problem that's long been solved, and/or a
   | misconfiguration on their end.
   | Since the messages to bounced, we can't do any more without
   | logs from their end...
   | Thanks,
   | Ward.
