That explains where you go with subscription questions. The address is
NOT the same as the one used for posting on the list. I suspect you
didn't correctly reply to the original message.
Your other message is an independent point. It has nothing to do with
whether you're subscribed or not, but simply is an acknowledgement that
you're a new poster to the list, and includes some suggestions. In
fact, I get that message sometimes, even though I was 3rd highest poster
here last year. It's perfectly legal to post without being a
subscriber, as you could be browing the messages online.
BTW, all upper-case is considered shouting. It makes a message much
harder to read, and more likely to be ignored.
