Then I would suggest that these people if ever wanting to live or working
here in Australia, dont subscribe to Scouts-L....Alan and I generally only
dial in once a day and one day we got 97 messages from Scouts-L. It is not
un common for us to get 50 messages from Scouts-L aday and this is not even
when it has reached it's limit.
The point is, who does this 50 messages aday limit really serve? Bascily,
only someone who lives in North America (I am including Canada in this) who
doesnt want that much mail. If you live in Australia, where we are anything
up to 16 hours ahead of various parts of the USA, the 50 messages a day
limit means very little.
