If handled right, it won't be a problem. The trick is to just keep drinking --- eliminates hangovers, and little irritations become humorous (this, by the way, is a tested, tried and true Whitney solution, pioneered by members of the black-sheep branch of the tree) Merry Whitney ----- Original Message ---- From: MICHAEL WHITNEY <Michaelrwhitney -at- msn.com<mailto:Michaelrwhitney -at- msn.com>> To: Croxton <croxton -at- acadiacom.net<mailto:croxton -at- acadiacom.net>>; whitney -at- rootsweb.com<mailto:whitney -at- rootsweb.com> Sent: Tuesday, February 12, 2008 4:45:07 PM Subject: Re: [WHITNEY] WHITNEY Digest, Vol 3, Issue 32 If Robert hasn't changed any settings since taking over, the list is set up so that you must be a member to post. So if they are spoofing current members address' you can't stop that with out kicking out the real member. And that won't work for long because they'll just grab another members email from the archives that are online. And to answer the next question before it's asked, Rootsweb doesn't have an option on the listowners page to take the message archives offline. The bottom line is they can and will get through by spoofing. The only way to stop this would be for Robert or I to receive every message first and have it held until it's rejected or accepted by us. My answer to that is this list generates too much traffic to try that. You folks wouldn't care for the delay that would cause and Robert and I would develop a drinking problem.
