It continues to amaze me how few people know that the standard Internet mailing list protocol for adminstrative changes to list foo@site is to send mail to foo-request@site. In this case, requests to be added to, removed from, etc., the self-interest list should go to: email@example.com. When you send requests for such actions to self-interest you are wasting resources by sending the message to everyone on the list, and annoying us in the bargain. Most of us cannot do anything about your request, either. Thanks, and I now return you to your regularly scheduled mail and news ..... EM

[mail about unnecessary "add/remove me" messages on this list]
Thanks for pointing this out, Eliot. Since the "signal-to-noise ratio" is a little too low right now, I have changed self-interest to a moderated list so that I can prevent unnecessary messages from going out to everybody.
As a user of self-interest you shouldn't be affected by this change, except that your message to self-interest may be delayed for a short period before reaching everyone else.
