Actually, the "old_framers@omsys.com" address is my alias list for
the 67 people to whom I sent that long post.  Since they did not
sign up for it, I'd rather not post to them as a group again, as
you just did with this note...  <g>

I also sent it to "framers@omsys.com", which now has 7 members, one
of whom zubscribed in the last hour after receiving my post...
Everybody, when you use "that word", the "sub" word, please spell
it with a "z"; otherwise majordomo will send me the post to approve.
The idea is to keep all accidental subs and unsubs off the full list.

That's pretty funny, really.  How on Earth do you reserve a list name?
There's no naming authority like InterNIC for them; you can use any
name you please.  Maybe he tried to reserve domain names, a major waste
of money when the new TLD (Top Level Domain) rules go through... the
namespace will become way too big.  How amusing.  How sad.
