Terry and Jesse, is there an option to receive the list in digest form?

I have found that it is a lot easier to keep track of lists that can

be sent in this way? -- Thanks.

Yes, there is a digest option for ADS-L. To change your reception to

the digest (which, for those who don't know, compiles messages for

about a day and then sends them all in one shot, the advantage being

that you get one big message instead of a bunch of small ones, the

disadvantage being chiefly the time factor), send the command:

set ads-l digest

to the address listserv[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] --NOT to this list.

Or Terry or I could do it for you.

In response to a comment in another message from DInIs, there

is a Dictionary Society of North America, but it doesn't have

a mailing list on line. There is DICTY, a recent list set up

for lexicographers, but it gets very little traffic, which I

fear would be the result of an exclusionary ADS-L as well.
