RE: Out of Office Auto Reply being taboo

Thanks for the note David.  Having been subscribed to many of the W3 mailing
lists since the mid 90's, this is the first time anyone has said anything to
me about OOF being taboo.  I subscribe to 30 some XML newsgroups.  It is
impossible for me (in a non-ivory tower) to conduct business without
notification of some sort.  It would be very inconvenient for me to have to
unsubscribe from 30 lists every time I am on the road - (about 50% of the
time) so, since the OOF inconveniences you and others I will unsubscribe
from the STYLES mailing list this week.  I will look up my information on
site at W3 or via digest.  I assume digest does not return an OFF.  You
shouldn't get another OOF before I unsubscribe, since it only sends one per
trip.  Also, I apologize to the group for any social indiscretion.

Please do not set autoreply mechanims that respond to people who send
messages to lists you recieve.  This can be done by any of:

 * getting an autoreply mechanism that does not respond to messages
   from lists

 * not using an autoreply mechanism

 * temporarily unsubscribing from lists and then resubscribing when you

It is very annoying for me and for others to get autoreply messages
every time I post a message to a list.
