I'm not trying to be sneaky here, or I would never have mentioned it. But
I'm not sure what you mean by "involuntarily shut down." There are NO
subscribers to RUSSEAU and never were -- so no archives, either, I believe.
Nope, just checked, no messages ever. That would, I think, make my
situation different from the GEDDIS and GADDIS lists in that both of those
lists have subscribers and a history. But the problem of spelling
variations and how to handle them remains.
