who said it's 5000 subscribers a day??? if I really did say this it's by mistake.. I meant 500 (5 Hundred) a day!
and please, leave the type of mailing aside, if you're a non believer don't offend other people, I didn't try to shove my beliefs into your faces and I was really offended with what you said about religion..
besides, I'm using the mass remove and mass subscribe features because I have multiple lists and I'm using 1 email for subscribing and 1 email for removals then collect all the emails sent to these addresses and subscribe or remove them from all the lists in order to avoid double subscriptions.. many users in my list send messages by mistake to the subscribe email ..
also my dear I've been running this list for over 3 years now and this number of subscribers didn't get there easy..
I'm sorry for all the fuss I've created by my simple request .. > From: vancleef at lostwells.net> Subject: Re: [Mailman-Users] Multi list management ..> To: khillo100 at hotmail.com> Date: Sun, 7 Sep 2008 10:27:11 -0600> CC: brad at shub-internet.org; mailman-users at python.org> > The esteemed Khalil Abbas has said:> > > > > > Dear Brad,> > > > first of all, godaddy has a very very strict policy against spamming, you can read about it in their website.. if they noticed the least of bounces they would terminate your whole server .. besides, my list is OPT-IN and I never use the mass subscribe feature unless I want to move people from one list to another ..> > > > second, what I meant was: each subscriber likes the service so much that he sends it to his friends, and his friends like it so much that most of them subscribe.. for the service is very cool, a single line of quote that is never hard to read with great wisdom and benefit ..
