I'm sure everyone is very intimate with this message.
What the listserve is telling you is that the list is locked, due to too
When Listserve Lite is set up, it automatically sets the message per day
limit to 50. It saves any further messages, until the list owner
(mark@******.net) or his deputy, (is there one?) releases the clog. This

They add to the 50 per day limit. (sorry about the yelling, but with a

any of these commands:
confirm *(will confirm that you are still on the list)
info *(this will have the listserve send you a file
of all available commands. very helpful.)
help *(an abbreviated form of the above.)
index *(if by some tragedy, you were off line for a
bit, and didn't get any mail, sending this
will get the listserve to send you an index
of the 'digests' for the list. Warning!
The packets on a high traffic list can be
query shadowrn *(The listserve will respond with your
current settings for the shadowrn list.)
set shadowrn nomail *(handy if you want to go away for the
weekend, without unsubbing. to get mail again,
send 'set shadowrn mail')
set shadowrn digest *(sends you one big packet of psts at
and, no signature. You'll get a mess back of Unknown command "jump"
(whatever was at the start of each line) Try 'Help'. And you will get
one (each is usually about three or four lines long) for every single
line that starts with a command not recognised by the listserve software.

I'd suggest that until then, everyone be polite and try to limit their
posts, combining into one post, if possible.

That's a question I think only Mark can answer.
