Unsubscribing and AOL

We've been asked by ibiblio to send a message to our list aimed at AOL 
subscribers. It appears that there are AOL subscribers on our list who 
either wish to unsubscribe or who have marked some of the list messages as 
spam. If AOL receives a certain number of these kind of messages they will 
block all messages to AOL subscribers sent from ibiblio. Ibiblio messages 
were blocked by Comcast and Yahoo in the past and each time it took a lot 
of effort and time on the part of list administrators, ibiblio and 
subscribers from those groups to straighten it out. We don't wish to have 
to do that with AOL.

Every message that each of you get includes a way to unsubscribe from this 
list at the top of the message. For those people getting individual 
messages it is listed as:
List-Unsubscribe: <http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/list.php>,

Those people getting the digest it says:
To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit
or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to

You can reach the person managing the list at

It's really very easy. You either go to our list address and go to the 
bottom of the page, enter the name you are subscribed under and press 
enter. It takes you to a screen where you can unsubscribe, get a password 
reminder, or change options. Alternately you can just click on the mailto 
link that sends an email asking to unsubscribe. At the bottom of the list 
page it also lists the email addresses of the list administrators: Diane 
Whitehead, Arnold Trachtenberg, and myself. If you click on one of our 
addresses you can send us a message asking to unsubscribe you. Or you can 
send a message to pbs-owner@lists.ibiblio.org which will come to the three 
of us. We of course would prefer for you to do it yourself as this is the 
quickest way, but are willing to do it for you if you can't figure it out.

So if someone from AOL wants to leave this group PLEASE follow these 
directions and DO NOT respond to the whole group. Thanks.
