POSTAL BLOWFISH HAS A NEW HOME ON THE INTERNET!!!
Thanks to the folks at smoe.org for hosting the new Postal Blowfish
Here's all the info you need to sign up

send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
send a message which says "subscribe postal-blowfish". You'll be prompted
as to how to confirm the subscription. *Save the response message*. It
contains a password which you'll need to use *if* majordomo ever thinks
your mail has changed when you attempt to unsubscribe.

there *is* no notion of "postal-blowfish-digest" anymore. This unsubscribe
will get you off of either list.

I'M GOING ON VACATION/NEED TO UNSUB FOR A SHORT TIME:
New feature with majordomo-2! You don't need to unsub to tell the list
server "stop sending me mail for awhile". Just send a message to
set postal-blowfish nomail
When you come back and wish to get mail again (saving all of your old
options as to whether you're on digest, etc), just send mail to

ABOUT POSTAL BLOWFISH
This list is intended to be a flame-free environment, so please refrain
from slamming your fellow Blowfishers. Keep in mind we're all here for
the same reason--we dig Guided By Voices. We pride ourselves on the unique
feeling of community we've established here; as such, the list will not
put up with immature name-calling and postal flaming. We're confident that
you'll like the list enough to never feel the need to vent spleen at
your fellow Blowfishers.
Please try to observe these as much as humanly possible. All of us will
appreciate it, and it will help keep the list the best around.
1. Racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynistic, and otherwise offensive
comments will NOT be tolerated. So, please be polite and refrain from
these types of insults and slurs, as well as explicit sexual references.
We want everyone to feel comfortable discussing their opinions here. It's
OK to disagree with your fellow 'Fish, but keep the discussion on an
intellectual level, not a personal one. We're here because we love GBV,
not to bad-mouth our comrades in rock.
2. Minimize the amount of quoted material. Don't resend an entire post
when quoting a sentence will do, and NEVER quote an entire digest because
NOBODY wants to waste time and money downloading something they already
have, and it makes it difficult and sometimes impossible to find what you've
3. Try to get permission from the publisher or author before posting
copyrighted material. You are responsible for anything you post.
4. Private communications should remain private unless and until all
parties to such communications (sender and all receivers) agree to make
5. All opinions expressed in Postal Blowfish are those of the
subscribers posting them and not necessarily those of the editorial board.
6. All commercial advertisements or announcements of material for trade are
the responsibility of those offering the material. All parties entering
into transactions commercial or otherwise as a result of notices in Postal
Blowfish do so at their own risk; neither the editorial board nor anyone
else not an immediate party to those transactions bear any responsibility
for unfulfilled buying or trading obligations.
These guidelines will be readily enforced. Violations of these guidelines will result in a warning; continued
violation will cause the termination of your subscription. Please don't force us to
do that! Such decisions will be made jointly by the editorial board.
Thank you, enjoy the list, and LONG LIVE ROCKATHON.
