Argh. Email distribution lists are evil. While I am subscribed to a declining number of such things — RSS has appropriate replaced many of ‘em — I still get quite a few lists via email, from news to discussion.
But here is the trouble: To prevent my email addresses from being sold, I receive all distribution lists at an email address that I don’t use for any other purpose. Now, however, for technical reasons I want to change that email address, so I’m forced to wander around from list to list changing the address at which I want to receive mail. It is unbelievably time-consuming and irritating, and I never want to have to do this again — and I shouldn’t have to.
