Hi, everyone! This is Jim, comin' at you with this week's Traffic Report.
The first Sunday of every month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR
list, as opposed to just the contributors.
Welcome to December.
In the past month I have gotten a couple of emails from subscribers who
are receiving unsolicited emails from someone who has apparently looked
into the email addresses of the subscribers of HUMOR. I told them that,
essentially, there is not much I can do to prevent someone from looking
through the lists of addresses -- other than wonder how much free time
someone might have by trying to track down more than nine thousand distinct
addresses -- and using it to solicit whatever they may be hawking.
There is, however, something you can do to prevent your address from
being found by someone who knows the addresses and commands for the
listserver: you can conceal your subscription. You will notice that the
numbers below indicate "both concealed and non-concealed" subscribers to
HUMOR. Concealed basically protects your email address from being
identified to someone trying to browse the listserver. If you feel that
you need this, all you need to do is send LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU the
command SET HUMOR CONCEAL. Like all commands to the listserver, it goes in
the body of the text of your email.
If you are reading these words now, and don't receive this Traffic Report
weekly, you are invited to become a contributor. You must pass a short
exam that is more of a test to make sure you understand the basic workings
of the listserver. You can get the guide to being a contributor, and the
exam by sending LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU the command GET HUMOR GUIDE, or on
the World Wide Web at http://www.webcom.com/jimphynn/humor/guide.html
Have a great month, everyone! If you have any questions or concerns,
feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit my home page at
http://www.webcom.com/jimphynn, or visit the HUMOR website at
http://www.webcom.com/jimphynn/humor/humor.html (please note the spelling
of HUMOR with a total of one U, for those of you who learned your spelling
rules by British, as opposed to American English...)

And now for my usual contribution of humor:
Subject: More than 31 Flavors?
One day Herb was in the mood for ice cream, so he walked to the nearby
Baskin-Robbins and ordered a sundae. "And be sure to put a cherry on top,"
he instructed the waitress.
Fifteen minutes later the sundae arrived at his table. Pushing it away,
Herb complained, "Where's the cherry? I'm not eating this."
Lifting her skirt, the waitress picked up the dish and sat on it. "Will
this do?" she giggled.
"Well, okay," said Herb grudgingly, "but it better not have any stones in
it or I'm not paying."
