I just re-subbed to this list after a lengthly absence, and surprise of
surprises, I'm not the only one to receive the L & A announcement. When
I accessed the admin page, I was informed that I was not the
administrator. Two of my lists have my correct contact information, but
the third does not. Instead, there's an *X*.
Except for the L & A announcement, this is all too familiar. Earlier
this year I was not recognized as administrator for all of my boards.
Several frustrating weeks later, I finally figured out a username that
worked, gained access, removed the *X*, and replaced my email address.
BTW - I have never had need to change my email address. It has always
been the one I use now.
Yesterday, I thought I'd logged in incorrectly--my previous login was
not remembered--so I clicked *forgot password* and received six user
names by email, each for the same account and with URLs to change the
password. So, one at a time, I changed the password and for each in
turn was directed to the public page, not the admin page.
Four of the six usernames are ones that I did, or could have devised,
but two are such that I know I didn't do it.
I really don't have any more time to deal with this problem right now,
so I'm hoping the gremlins will take pity on me while I sleep, and set
