  Somebody on the list evidently let their e-mail account go inactive and 
neglected to unsubscribe themselves from this list.

  Thier sys-admin has conveniently set up an automatic reply which gets
sent to the list every time the list sends e-mail to it.

  Apparently js@ufnet.ufl.edu is not recieving messages in digest mode.  It
looks like (s)he is in "no ack" mode - meaning his/her messages are not
sent back to her.  Thank goodness... imagine how much traffic we'd be
getting if there was a loop like that.

  I guess this will remain a problem until the list maintainer removes
js@ufnet.ufl.edu from the list. 

  Annoying, isn't it?

  I'm sending a copy to Ryan.... (the list maintainer, I believe)
