Subject: Re: [Wikimedia-l] REMINDER: Invitation to the October 2018 
Wikimedia Monthly Activities Meeting: Thursday, October 25th, 18:00 

I would like to mention that WikimediaAnnounce-l is supposed to 
forward to
Wikimedia-l (although there have often been technical problems 
with this
and I believe that these problems are ongoing), so under the 
present system
it may not be possible for Wikimedia-l subscribers to escape 
announcements that are sent to WikimediaAnnounce-l unless someone 
creates a
custom filter in their email service. Your suggestion that people 
who want
reminders should subscribe to WikimediaAnnounce-l is okay, but 
probably would not save subscribers to Wikimedia-l from receiving 
unless all reminders are sent to WikimediaAnnounce-l and those 
are not forwarded to Wikimedia-l. I would not support 
WikimediaAnnounce-l emails from being forwarded to 

I would also like to suggest that your tone on this topic 
could be more
diplomatic, and that you should refrain from making assertions 
about how
almost all readers of this list feel in the absence of some 
evidence that
would support such an assertion.

Of the things to be 
upset about, I understand how this one could be
irritating, but there doesn't 
seem to be consensus that there is a problem,
and I don't think that it's 
worth losing one's temper over this subject.

I am near to the monthly 
limit of 15 emails to Wikimedia-l, and I want to
conserve my remaining few 
emails for other subjects, so this will be my
only post in this thread for 
this month. If you want to talk more, you can
contact me
