Greetings to all subscribers.  A few people have written to me saying that
they aren't able to determine the original senders of some of the messages
posted to Darwin-L because they use mail systems that delete most of the
header information from incoming messages.  This is just a reminder that
people should always sign their posts with name and e-mail address so that
everyone can tell where each message is coming from.

I'd also like to remind people that, since the volume of mail the group is
generating is quite high, not every reply to a posted message need be sent to
the group as a whole.  If you have a one or two line response to a post, or a
personal query, or a simple vote on some issue, please consider sending it
privately rather than publicly.  We are already getting a few cancellations
from people who have written to me saying that they like the list very much,
but can't keep up with the volume of mail we send out.

The recently-revised welcome message contains a number of useful hints on
posting and dealing with mail volume.  You can retrieve a copy of it by
sending the message:


to the usual address: listserv@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu.
