Yes, you must be subscribed for posts to go to the list
automatically.  If you are not subscribed, your message is held for
approval.  Since there is a lot of spam sent to the lists, we don't
send notices for held messages.  Sometimes, the moderators miss the
needle in the haystack and discard real messages along with spam.  If
your message wasn't posted, please send it again.  If you don't have a
copy, let me know approximately when you sent it and I'll check my
archive of messages to see if it is there.

Either will work.  The preferred address is address@hidden  Due to
limitations of MailMan and the current mailing list host, which also
hosts a number of other lists, we can't call it address@hidden on the
web page.
