I've been reading the s.b.e.l. newsgroup regularly, but after the recent
server change I was not able to reply to some of the threads without first
subscribing to LEPS-L.  The listserver was apparently filtering out
non-subscribing contributors and preventing them from bouncing reply
messages back to the original source.  Now, after subscribing via email, I
get all of the messages in my mailbox, and don't need to read the newsgroup
(at least I don't think I need to read the newsgroup).  The downside is
that sometimes I get so much LEPS-L mail that I don't always respond to my
work related mail in a timely fashion (no, I regret to say that entomology
is not my bread and butter, only my passion).

Anyway, I thought this might be of interest...
