Note: Some mail lists take a while for turnaround. Oftentimes you and others may not see your message for up to three hours or so. This is normal.

Note: Do not be alarmed if you get a handful of returned e-mail messages. These are caused by individual e-mail addresses which are subscribed, but are no longer valid or working addresses. When you see these, rest assured that your actual e-mail probably did successfully make it to the mail listand the server is in the process of distributing the message to everyone.
