i didn't get this message.  strange.  in any event, every account will get
harvested sooner or later.   sad fact of life.   even the kernel mailing
list gets harvested and bombed.

        vox-TECH is for TECHnical linux/computer discussion.
        vox      is for everything else.

this may seem like a rather convoluted naming convention to you, but i'll bet
that after a little effort, it'll become second nature.

so for instance, a discussion about batch scheduling would clearly be
vox-tech.  a discussion about your ABC's would go onto vox.   sometimes the
line is truly blurred.  in that case, i just ask that you use your common
sense.  some people want the benefit of our help without the traffic of the
LUG itself.  be kind to them.
