Esteemed colleague David Mortman has volunteered to take mailing-list approval duties off of my hands. I have revised the Mailing List page accordingly. Please address correspondence regarding the list to David (details on the Mailing List page).

Folks, the mailing list approval process is officially out of control. As you may know, we do not automatically approve applicants to the list because of my severe dislike of e-mail harvesting bots and marketeers, and because of a desire to ensure that the membership list is “clean.”
Manual vetting is the only way to do this, at the present. Unfortunately, it means that I have to manually inspect every applicant’s e-mail address.
