For my last two message ("Blackbirds" and "Glass Curtain"), I also got

back two letters with all sort of junk from Morehead State attached. What was

that all about?

One can't say for sure without seeing the messages and full headers, but it

sounds as if someone at Morehead State did not unsubscribe from the list

before his or her account was closed. The esult would be that now posters to

the list are getting "undeliverable message" bounces from that account's

server. Send a copy of the bounce message to one of the ADS-L adminisrators

and they can unsub the person manually -- I think that may be the only

thing, or one of the only things, to be done at this point. People should

unsubscribe before letting their account be closed.

Someone -- one of the moderators if memory serves -- also mentioned that the

DSNA (Dictionary Soc of North Amer) has a listserv DICTY, or something like

that. I could not find any info about it on the DSNA website, which is Does anyone know if that listserv exists at

this point?
