When I first started my list, I had two people who made every mistake in
the book. They wrote to the wrong addresses, issued the wrong commands,
spelled the lists and the commands wrong plus posted multiple messages to
the list telling me how crummy the list was and how nothing worked right.
As you said, it worked fine for everyone else.

The true irony of the situation is that one of those complaining was a
professor of computer science at a major univeristy and the other was a
PHD candidate in Biomolecular Medicine (or at least that's what their
signature files stated).
