The first, is your regular EMAIL account, which you don't want polluted with posts from anywhere. Just private email, so when you log on you have your email there.
More recent problems with AOL and it's spam policy have put a halt to accepting ANY subscriptions using AOL email address. Our list is provided by the graciousness of Jerrell Kautz of www.theatreorgans.com. To quote Jerrell in a global email:
"Thanks to email@example.com who reported over 30 posts to AOL as spam yesterday while I was out of town, we will no longer be able to serve AOL users at all on either the classifieds ads or this list (Theatreorgans-L). If you have an AOL address, you need to get it switched to something in the real world immediately. We are told if we have any more spam reports our ISP will disown us and we'll have no server to be on".
If you would truly like to join Carillon-L we suggest you use an alternate email address such as Gmail, Hotmail, etc. or sign up for a PRIVACY FRIENDLY ISP! such as Sonic.net
Then maintain 3 additional separate email accounts. Subscribe to each list under a different account. To really be spiffy, get an email program like EUDORA OSE, Thunderbird or MS Outlook that allows you to read all of your pop3 type email in one program, sorted by folders.

The Rules of Conduct
1. Introduce yourself. It's a great way to make friends
2. Use of appropriate humor is ALWAYS encouraged.
3. Be polite to the other people on the list. Just because you may not share the same view point
with someone else doesn't mean you need to start a war.
4. Being open minded is the key to getting along with others.
5. Keep things on topic. If you wander off the topic of the list, please keep it interesting & humorous
at the very least.It may keep you from getting flamed.
6. If you have a problem with another list member, don't take action yourself. Let the mean and
grumpy list administrators take care of it. Do not flame his/her members via the list. This list
is for friendly folks not old grumps. Only the list administrators are allowed to be crotchety.
7. When replying to a previous post, please delete what is not important to what you are saying as
best you can. In other words, quote only what is relevant to what your post is about. There's
nothing more discouraging then scrolling through 2000 words of a previous post before we get
to what you have to say.
8. If your are trying to sell something (i.e. an instrument) by using the list as a means of
advertising...Although there are more appropriate places to do that such as the
Theatre Organ Classifieds. All we ask is that extensive transactions between two (or
more)individuals remain private. If telling everyone may save an instrument (especially a
historic one), by all means post away.
9. Do post about concerts and other important events. Just keep them brief and to the point.
Do post about the size of your organ and any hints and kinks you have ran into in the past.
10. Any Problems with the servers will be fixed as soon as we know what the problem is (and how
to fix it). Just be patient if such a problem occurs.
11. Last But NOT least, HAVE FUN and share your experiences. That's what the list was created for.
