Let me clearify this once and for all...
I have NOTHING to do with these unsubscriptions! Mail has come from his
account to majordomo with the requests. If that is because his account is
hacked, if it is because there are more than one people using the account
or if it's somebody who has send fake-mail to majordomo, I have no idea.
And it's outside my control. Majordomo is a program. It gets mail from
somebody saying to unsubscribe them, and then it will do that. If somebody
tries to unsubscribe somebody else, it sends a message to me for approval.
And I can assure you that I do NOT approve such requests.
So. Who's being rude? Here I put quite a lot of time into making these
lists work. And what do I get for it? Accusitions like this? Thanks a lot.

Feel free to step off the list. I don't remove people because of these
things. I send them a message politely (I hope) asking them not to do it.
If they repetedly would do these things, I would remove them from the list
after several warnings. This has NOT YET happened to A SINGLE person on

Whose shit are we talking about? Since the beginning of the message was
addressed to me as the list administrator, I guess you're talking about
Let me then clearify a few things. Over the last few months, I have not
posted many messages to list-zshell. I'd say less than 10-20 to be on the
safe side. You can check the archives on www.ticalc.org if you are
Most of these messages has been SINGLE messages to TERMINATE threads of
what you call "shit".

This is EXACTLY what I do to these people.

Who's giving who bullshit?

So who is talking here? Who's the guy who posted this to the list instead
of the list owner (me)?

I have not followed these threads closely, but I can say at least one
Expansion of the TI-85 RAM is NOT rediculous. It is very much possible. It
would require ZShell to work. However, the thread might be more suited in
the ti-hardware list. But this list has not been up very long, and that's
why the discussions have not moved there yet (at least I would like to
think that is the reason).

Before, I must say I had no problem at all. But after this message, I must
say I have.

I wouldn't say you're one of the best guys on it...
There has been a lot of crap posted on list-zshell lately. But I must say
that this is one of the worst so far. This kind of crap REALLY makes me
pissed. And those of you who has been around for some time have noted that
this has not happened many times. Even though there has been a lot of
things that may have validated it.
So far, I have not had to exclude a single person from the list. And I
don't want to start it either. But if you guys (and I don't mean this
messages author only - it applies to all of you) keep writing this shit, I
If that does not help, the lists WILL close down. I am maintaining them on
my free time, and it takes time!
I am not asking for each of you guys to write me a thank-you message once
every hour. But I do ask for, and request, that I am spared this kind of
shitty accusations. If that does not stop, then I can assure you that I
Then finally a little clearification about the subscribe/unsubscribe
Majordomo will AUTOMATICALLY subscribe/unsubscribe anybody that sends mail
from the correct address (e.g. email@example.com wants to unsubscribe
firstname.lastname@example.org). That will be placed in the majordomo log file, which I
examine at regular basis. In the case above, there were fully correct
messages that came from the address asking to change subscriptions for
that very user. I had nothing to do with it. The reason this mail came
here can be many, but it did come, and who was I to argue with that? Or
mainly, who was Majordomo to argue?
If email@example.com wants to unsubscribe firstname.lastname@example.org, majordomo will refuse it.
Instead a message will be sent to me (as list administrator) asking be to
"approve that email@example.com subscribes firstname.lastname@example.org". I do NOT allow this
unless it is appearant that it is a misconfiguration (e.g. it is
email@example.com unsubscribing firstname.lastname@example.org).
Those are the cases, that is the explanation.
I would like this thead to stop on list-zshell RIGHT NOW. Please feel free
to send me a personal mail regarding these things. I will read it all, and
I will respond to any questions or comments. But do NOT take this to the
list. I consider it a closed matter, and I don't want to hear any more of
these accusitions on the list. You are free to take them to me in personal
e-mail, and I will respond to them point for point.
And right now in a very bad mood.
