Thank you for your detailed cookbook, but I would lose moderation of my
own postings to this newsletter mailing list if I would do either way as
you suggested. I know that the basic intention of Mailman mailing lists
is to let all members of a list communicate with others and I am kind of
"misusing" it as a newsletter mailing list.
