FLAG MAILING LIST
[ List "Netiquette" ]
FLAG invites foreign language professionals in the state of Georgia to join
its ListServ. This mailing list is intended in the first place--but not
necessarily exclusively--to serve as non-commercial communication tool.
Membership in FLAG is not required (but strongly
encouraged) for participation. (Note that you can get get announcements via
newsfeed; follow this link to find out how.)
This is a closed list, which means that subscriptions are not automatic.
They need to be approved and set-up by the FLAG board, list owner and
administrator. This is simply so that unauthorized parties cannot subscribe
and/or post to the list (so it is a security and spam avoidance precaution).
This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is
available only to the list administrator. FLAG does not sell email
addresses from list members. (For further information see FLAG's
- Joining the List
To request subscription, complete this short form and submit it.
(Alternatively, send to the webmaster the
respective information in a plain email message.)
(Please note that you may be contacted upon receipt of your subscription
request. Typically, this is simply to verify that you qualify, i.e. belong
to the audience for who this list is offered [see above]. FLAG appreciates
your understanding for this precaution intended to ensure that list
membership will be a worthwhile experience.)
Upon approval for membership you will receive an automatically generated
message with further information. Read and keep this message. In particular,
review your email address in the email header--this is the address used to
register you with the list (see also above). You will receive list messages
at this address.
- Using the List
To post a message to ALL subscribers, send a message addressed to
(Hint: Create a "FLAG List" entry in your email address book for this address.)
- You can only post to the list by sending email from the address entered
- A REPLY to a message received from the list will be sent to the
original sender only and not to the entire list (this helps to keep the
volume of mail managable). Therefore, if you wish to send your reply to ALL
you will have to adjust your "TO" line to the list address.
- Consult this "netiquette" for further
considerations concerning the use of the list.
- Leaving the List
To sign off, go
to the user options page or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
(not to the list itself!) with a brief request asking to be unsubscribed.
Questions? Contact the
list administrator (=Director of Electronic Media).
