Hi there
    About two years ago I subscribed to an ISP in order to get for
myself an e-mail account so I can send mail to people electronically. In
time I found that you can also subscribe to certain groups who will without
fees send mail periodically to your mailbox, in my curiosity and naivety I
sent a letter to subscribe to this discussion group. Ever since I have been
receiving mail from several people via this address. Well you might say I
got what I asked for but the topics as well as the language used appear so
alien to me,sometimes I get letters written as computer codes. While I would
love to learn how to program my PC so I can do more with it but I thought
there were higher languages where you could learn in english. I actually
thought this group was about the internet and that it would enlighten me
about the world wide web (www)
but in order not to interrupt the discussion I have since been silently
deleting them as I receive them.
    Now I have two reasons for writing this letter. First I would like the
man-in-charge to read it and pity me in my plight and remove me from the
group or tell me how to. Secondly since the letters are only sent in through
the group (i.e.. www-lib@w3.org) why doesn't that address appear in the
message header as opposed to the name of the original sender. The reason I
mention this is that sometimes I receive several messages from a Henrik
Frystyk. At first I thought someone was trying to sabotage my PC by sending
unsolicited mail probably containing evil viruses that seek to wipe-out the
contents of ones harddisk.

That said please don't allow my naivety to disturb your discussions, I would
just like to be left out of it.

Thank you
Folayemi
