If I do not get mail from the list what is wrong?
If you sign up for this list, but never recieve mail it is likely your ISP is blocking mail lists as part of their anti-spam defense system. You may be able to use a feature provided by the ISP to opt-in and allow the email from our list-serve system to pass or it is possible that in the case of pesky ISPs that you will be unable to convince their system to cooperate. If they are bone headed you will have to read the web posted mail messages or get another ISP that is less bone headed. One of the reasons we switched to google distribution was to minimize this problem.
How much will membership in the BSFS Mailing List cost me?
