Do You Re-distribute TidBITS?

Send Article to a Friend

Do You Re-distribute TidBITS? Each week, a number of people receive TidBITS issues that are redistributed via private mailing lists or online forums, rather than via direct email subscriptions. Many of these services exist within companies, user groups, and other organizations where a single, central address for receiving TidBITS issues makes a lot of sense. This sort of thing is fine with us, but it can cause problems when mail errors are returned to us from addresses that aren't directly subscribed to TidBITS. In those cases, we have little choice but to ferret out and unsubscribe the address of the entire mailing list in order to make the mail errors stop, and that can inconvenience a lot of people. Unfortunately, as the TidBITS list grows, that's happening more and more often.

So, if you're in charge of a mailing list, online forum, or other service that redistributes TidBITS each week, please contact Geoff Duncan <geoff@tidbits.com> with the following information:

  • The email address of the redistribution service that's subscribed to TidBITS

  • The name and email address of the person to contact if there are problems with the redistribution service

  • The approximate number of people who use the service or receive messages from it

This information will be held in the strictest confidence (as is the entire TidBITS subscription list!); the idea is to let us gracefully handle any problems that might arise without interrupting anyone's access to TidBITS. Thanks! [GD]
