Friends,  
 
I have finally communicated with our volunteer technician who produces our  
listserv.  He stated that he is fully ready to implement the division that  
Yearly Meeting approved in Sixth Month.  He expects to do that on 15,  Eighth 
Month ("August").  
 
For your information, I am copying below the text sets that I sent to  him.  
 
Bill Reynolds, Clerk 
SAYMA Ad Hoc Committee on Electronic Communications (aka "ECC," "Electronic  
Communications Committee")
 
 
1.  Name:  "SAYMA IMP^O^ Bulletin Service"   

Welcome statement to go to first-time  subscribers (which will be everybody 
initially):  


"Welcome to the SAYMA IMP^O^ Bulletin  Service.  This listserv is operated by 
the SAYMA Administrative  Assistant to distribute notices, announcements, 
etc. directly related to  SAYMA's conducting the business of the yearly meeting.  
(Other  general interest notices and announcements are to be posted on  the 
"SAYMA GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS LISTSERV."  Items of  opinions, points of view, 
protests, and back and forth discussion about  such, are to be posted on the  
"SAYMA DISCUSSION  LISTSERV.")" 

    No bottom line is needed for postings to  "SAYMA IMP^O^ Bulletin Service"
 
2.  Name:  "SAYMA DISCUSSION LISTSERV"  
 
    Welcome statement to go to first-time  subscribers (which will be 
everybody initially):  

"Welcome to the SAYMA DISCUSSION LISTSERV.  This  list is for the SAYMA 
community to discuss general issues of concern to  Quakers. (For further 
information about Friends' concerns see Quaker.org).  This list is especially for those 
who like electronic back and forth  discussion about views, opinions, etc. 
Please compose your postings to this  list to reflect the fundamental Quaker 
value that "there is that of God in  Everyone". When responding to another post, 
respond to that of God in the  author or subject of that post. This means 
express your perspective sincerely  without passing judgement on the other's 
motives, character, intelligence or  integrity.  It is good to allow  time to pass 
for seasoning your thoughts before posting a response.  Please also be moderate 
in your  quantity of postings in order to avoid overwhelming  subscribers."
