No, Sam Michel is our kindly host here. More info's in the mail sent when
you subscribed.

Note that a mailing list is *not* a chat line. Each message gets pushed out
to all subscribers.

Many people take mailing lists in "digest" mode, where an entire day's
articles are consolidated. Different types of online communication have
different styles and fill different needs.

(iow, a mailing list is not designed for rapid-fire low-value conversation,
but -- due to each message being read and evaluated by each subscriber --
is better suited to considered conversation.)


To UNSUBSCRIBE send: unsubscribe flasher in the body of an
email to list-manageratshocker [dot] com. Problems to: owneratshocker [dot] com
N.B. Email address must be the same as the one you used to subscribe.
For info on digest mode send: info flasher to list-manageratshocker [dot] com
