I've just deleted your subscription to SCREEN-L.
Here's a little pointer for future reference:
Your message (see above) was distributed to every subscriber to SCREEN-L,
adding to general Internet clutter. Then I had to manually erase your
account. There's a simpler, cleaner way to depart from most mailing lists.
Many Internet mailing lists are run by a piece of software called LISTSERV.
To get on or off such a list, you just send mail to LISTSERV, which handles
all that bureaucratic business automatically. Rather than sending mail to
the list itself, as in your message above, you e-mail LISTSERV and you put
the following in the first line of the message:
signoff name-of-list or
unsubscribe name-of-list or even just
Hence, with SCREEN-L, you would e-mail [log in to unmask] (not
[log in to unmask]) and put this in the first line:
No muss, no fuss.
Yours in tidier Internetting...
