<borrows that list admin hat from Val for a sec...>

I definitely second Val's statement that if you're bothered by someone 
you SHOULD mention it to an admin.  We don't know how people feel if 
you don't tell us, and I find often when I ask people have comments 
they wanted to make but didn't.  But I'm not on IRC much lately and 
haven't been doing as  much off-list communication as I used to, so I 
haven't been able to solicit comments from people.

And to Val and Carla's good comments, I'd also like to remind people 
that they can reach the admins of any linuxchix list by using the email 

LISTNAME-owner at linuxchix.org

So for techtalk, this would be techtalk-owner at linuxchix.org.

If your concern is with one of the admins (we're human, you're allowed 
to not like us all), or there's an admin who you're not comfy talking 
to for any reason, you can also find out our individual addresses 
through the web interface, which can be found at


Or, for this list:


All the lists have several admins, so you can choose the ones that seem 
most approachable to you.
