Not wild about this, because people don't subscribe to lists, the list subscribes to them. I'd hate to receive DMs from someone who added me to @spammer/spammy_spam, for example; I didn't ask for that. Unless what you're asking is to send DMs to people who *follow* that list? I'm not wild about that either, since I may have no interest in the actual person who made the list, but I'm less opposed to that than the former. -- ------------------------------------ personal: http://www.cameronkaiser.com/ -- Cameron Kaiser * Floodgap Systems * www.floodgap.com * ckai...@floodgap.com -- The less we know, the better we feel. -- David Bowie, "Miracle Goodnight" --
