Exactly what happens is:
A person subscribes, and confirms to the LISTSERV that they
really _did_ want to subscribe.
At this point, the LISTSERV will send me a message saying
something much like "Joe Average User <user@****.dom> has subscribed to
the ShadowRN mailing list."
I log on not less than once every thirty hours (much more on some
days), so as soon as I see the message I'll invoke a shell script which
sends out the FAQ. Like any other Internet EMail, the usual delivery time
is two minutes to two hours.
Unfortunately, I cannot gurantee that anybody will actually read
