my messages are bouncing and i'm getting an error message.

if you are seeing this:

From: MAILER-DAEMON@hyperreal.org
To: you@your.email.address
Subject: failure notice

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at hyperreal.org.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

ezmlm-reject: fatal: Sorry, I don't accept messages of MIME Content-Type 'text/html' (#5.2.3)

then your posts are being posted with HTML, for various reasons (security and virii the top of the list) HTML is not allowed.
hotmail, aol, and others frequently default to HTML emails, you will need to switch to a text only format to post.

if you are seeing this:

Possible mass crosspost or spam.
There are too many addresses in the headers. You can clean up the headers and resend it.

the list is set to drop these mails as there are too many addresses in the headers, a sign of spam, and also of improper replying.... (to the list and to the sender) which just gets worse as more people reply.

my posts are not getting through to the list.

well this can be due to a number of reasons. the most common are posting from another address, or using a banned word.
i ban words based on off topic threads as a way to stop them from happening.

i'm not getting list mails!

well this could be a few different things, most often it's a mailer issue. please don't send a test message.
You might also have been unsubbed. usually this is from mail being returned undelivered or with some other error. the list program will automagically do this, if you are not having problems try resubbing.
sometimes me or a co-admin will manually unsub you, it's usually for something stupid, we don't have the time/motivation to explain the rules over and over to people, sorry. maybe give them another read.

W3.ORG Compliance?

I aim for html 4 / xhtml 1 / CSS compliance, but sometimes due to java or other funniness i sometimes use, it's not 100% compliant. Also some of the dynamic content isn't 100% compliant, but such is life. If you encounter any browser issues, email me about it.

is there a spoon?
