Splitting the list
Sat, 2 Jan 1999 19:29:47 -0800 (PST)
First, I apologize for all the duplicates I just sent out... I just
learned that the mail system does not combine the recipients of two lists
and remove duplicates, like it does for individual addresses. I won't
send to more than one list again.

I've never heard of that...can you name one list that does it? I thought
the purpose of splitting lists was to allow people to filter out
subjects they weren't interested in, to reduce their traffic.
You're saying you want to subscribe to one list that gets ALL the posts?
OK... I'll do it. But don't blame me if it's more confusing.
For instance: If I'm only on TUNES-ALL, and I want to unsubscribe from
TUNES-LLL, I can't do that directly, instead I have to unsubscribe from
TUNES-ALL, then subscribe to all the other lists.
