Subject: The listserv is mailbombing me!
Reply-To: ao950 AT freenet DOT carleton DOT ca

Over the last 48 hours my mailbox has been flooded with 200 K of this
bounce message crap! Every one of them refers to (and totally quotes) a
message I put in the DJGPP newsgroup. Evidently, the listserv is spasming
again. Is there no way to make this stuff go (in only ONE copy) to the
list admin and not the people posting on the *newsgroup*?
Heck I use the newsgroup because I can't cope with a mail volume the size
of comp.os.msdos.djgpp.

    As a matter of fact I am. DJGPP runs beautifully on this new Pentium-166
    with its 32 megs of RAM and 2 gigs of HD.
