Well said, Ed, and thanks for the reminders.

Will you be attending the JEN Conference?  I hope we can connect the dots there.

On another note, what's the earliest open list sponsorship that you have?

Thanks in Advance,

> 1) It's not a place for promoting a specific project. We do allow people to post updates on addresses, pass along pronunciations, etc. If you wish, you may sponsor the list for a week to get the word out about your release or projects. We also allow offers of free programs to be posted.
> 2) While playlist posting is part of the list's function, it was created primarily to discuss issues. Please feel free to discuss things related to jazz radio programming and promotion, your views on releases (if you're a programmer or host) and other things related to jazz radio.
> 3) Responses from the mailing list software are automated and the software is usually correct in its response. I don't need indignant replies because the software rejected an email. Usually it is because people are trying to post from a different address than they signed up with. This can happen easily with the number of email addresses we all have. The only way the list software can tell that it is you when you post to the list is if you use the address you signed up with.
> 4) If you send a playlist blind copied to this list, it will be held for moderation automatically by the software. That's to avoid spam. In addition, if you have not posted to the list before, your first post will be moderated. The same goes for when you unsubscribe for a vacation and then subscribe again when you return. The list software sees you as a new member of the list.
> 5) There's no staff of people here working full time to maintain the list. If something needs attention, it might take several hours or until the next day for me to see it.
> 6) This list is provided as a free service by a private entity. There's no inherent right to use this list and I don't want to hear first amendment arguments. Congress shall make no law, but I will draw the line on certain areas of discussion that are inappropriate. For the most part, the list governs itself, so if you step over the line, someone else on the list will tap you on the shoulder and let you know.
> 7) Finally, the tone of discussion on the internet is ridiculous in its nastiness. (Just take a look at comments on blogs and news sites.) Let's continue to keep this an oasis from that.
