[CentOS] Posting Messages to this list

This list is a "Members Only" posting list ... this is good because it
prevents us from getting hundreds of Viagra commercials and such.

You can only post to the list with the e-mail address that you
subscribed with.

If you post from another e-mail address, it will tell you that "Your
post needs to be approved by a Moderator."

I just want to tell everyone that I normally _DO_NOT_ approve these
posts to the list.  It has nothing to do with the post not being good or
me not liking you or your post :)

What it does have to do with is SPAM.  We get hundreds of e-mails per
day to each list as SPAM, and it would take several hours each day to
touch each every e-mail from a non-member and verify it was relevant and
not spam.  I am sorry, but I just don't have time to do this.

If you post to a CentOS mailing list and you get one of those messages,
you should repost your comments using the correct e-mail address that
you subscribed with.  You do not need to worry about removing the old
post, as I will delete it along with all the others.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Johnny Hughes
