Bounces from the IxDA Discussion List

Hi Everyone,

You may have been getting bounces when sending messages to our list.
Our service provider goofed and marked our mailing list as active,
which caused the bounces. Why were we marked as inactive? Apparently a
script they wrote had a bug that mistakenly marked not only ours, bot
other lists on their system as inactive.

If you're seeing this message, our host has fixed the problem. Please
carry on posting away ...

Just my two cents.
