Re: Contacting the Site Admin

Ben Martin (bass.bmartin@googlemail.com)



So far I have only used this list as a learning tool being an entry level 
Klingon scholar but even being as young as I am, the obvious is evident. 
Christopher, we have no power over whether or not you are unsubscribed, the 
website is not ours and nor is the list, we are simply subscribers (like 
yourself). Instead of yelling (using caps lock, which by the way just 
frustrates people) please just get over it and put yourself in our position. 
If you were a subscriber to a mailing list and you had zero power over the 
situation, wouldn't you be frustrated if someone kept bugging you over 
something you had no control over?
Please get over yourself, pull yourself from your pedestal and understand 
that the list is not ours, we do not have control over it and are not 
administrators or moderators, only users.
Thankyou,
Ben
(Ready to learn!)
