Ok, there have been some mis-postings, and some (largly inaccurate)
flames about them.  Let's lay out the ground rules:

   1) INFO-ATARI8 is for the 8-bit machines
   2) INFO-ATARI16 is for the 16-bit machines
   3) INFO-ATARI is currently synonymous with INFO-ATARI8
      (contrary to the recent flame, messages are not
      posted FROM INFO-ATARI, they are posted TO INFO-ATARI)
   4) INFO-ATARI8-REQUEST, INFO-ATARI16-REQUEST, and INFO-ATARI-REQUEST
      are ONLY for posting bookkeeping notes to.  Add to list.  Drop
      from list.  They are NOT for posting messages to, hoping someone
      there will figure out where it should go for you.  Lets use a
      little judgement and keep our mailing list operators lives a
      little easier.

My own vote is that INFO-ATARI (no number) should be a master post to
both 8 & 16 bit lists, and used for general interest items.  This is,
however, only my opinion on how it *should* be, and does not reflect
the current status of the mailing list.

There has been some misteaks on posting to the lists, but the flames
have been equally irresponsible.  There was a posting on INFO-ATARI8
about a letter from Electronic Arts that said they will start publishing
for the 8-bit machines again.  It ended with the hope that if we keep
up the pressure they will do some for the STs.  This was promptly flamed.
That flame was out of line.  The bulk of the message was about the 8-bit
programs they were about to start.  There was, however, a reply to this
msg about starting a boycott of EA, to spite them.  This was directed
to the ST owners, but due to the laziness of the poster (I am assuming
he used a 'reply' function in his mailer) it was posted only to the
INFO-ATARI8 list.  This too, was out of line.  A more recent flame
was complaining about a posting from 'INFO-ATARI ... the ones who
split the list'.  This is flat-out wrong.  As I pointed out above
the INFO-ATARI address is synonymous with INFO-ATARI8.  It was addressed
wrong, but it was NOT from 'the guys who split the list'.

How about we all be a little more responsible both with our addresses
AND our hair-trigger responses when something goes wrong?
