RE: [SEAOC] Fed UP

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Let me explain what happened:

A user somewhere in Sweden gets messages from our list and never subscribed 
to our list. He send email to me and our service provider. We searched our 
distribution list for his domain name (edu.org) and found none. On our 
distribution list, there are several other lists subscribed from all over 
the world. So, our guess was that he is probably subscribed to one of those 
lists.

Anyway, what we found is interesting. On our list there was a bad address 
which ended with ".edu". The list software designed to try bad addresses 
again after adding ".net" or ".com" or ".org" at the end of the bad 
address. So when it added ".org" to the bad address, the domain edu.org got 
the mail.

This person in Sweden could have prevented it long time ago if he would 
have simply forwarded one of the email from the list to us with all headers 
intact. He finally did that today. That is how we found what the problem 
was.

The problem is fixed now and hopefully we will not hear from him again. One 
lesson learnt out of this process is that, be careful when you pick a 
domain name for your server. edu.org is a BAD choice.

Thank you all for you cooperation.

Dear Claes,
It seems easy for you to get fed up with these extraneous messages and I
would too, *if* I were expecting that some technician who is paid to
keep the system up where simply not doing his/her job.
The truth is that one person *volunteers* his many hours to the
maintanance of this listservice - Shafat Qazi.
I take offense at this, since Shafat and others (myself included) spend
hundreds of hours each month providing this service as well as our
publications which are distributed *free* to any SEA organization that
cares to have it. We are not compensated, and yet we respond to these
problems as fast as is possible.
Until which time that we are able to afford to hire someone to do
nothing by maintain our listservice and Web pages, we are at the mercy
of someone that cares so little about what each of thinks that he should
leave the service is total devastation so as to cause you the briefest
amount of irritation.
Sorry about the sarcasm, but I don't feel that my time spent going
through a few (even 25) erroneous listings is worth that much anger.

Give him some credit for giving you the platform that you need to let
all of us (even those of us not interested) know of  your anger.
