It appears that everyone who subscribed to this list with an @aol.com
address has been unsubscribed. This is because AOL decided to reject
messages because it didn't like how URLs were formatted - this is
their error URL:
To my knowledge no URLs were misformatted, even in the advertising.
If you are an AOL subscriber wondering why things suddenly stopped
and peruse the archives, now you'll know why.
BTW no human was involved in any of this. AOL's systems rejected
the messages from the Mailman mailing list software as used by
SourceForge which then automatically unsubscribed the users
because mailings to them were being bounced (I believe it waits
for 3 consecutive bounces from the same user).
