When I get incorrectly-addressed messages on my lists, a simple reply message
of "this is the wrong address for discussion articles. Please use
<list-address> instead.", including the original message, works fine.

My problems with it were related to your apparent need to take your dislike
of America Online out on its members. Generally speaking, when list owners
have had problems with our members and I've contacted them, they have either
asked me to remove their list from our database or have worked with me to
provide better information.

That's a good question. Since the entry does not appear in our database, they
must be getting hold of it elsewhere. Perhaps you need to make your wishes
known in whatever other areas you advertise your list?

When I get questions from users, I direct them to the USENET newsgroups which
cover motorcyling. I do not believe that your "extra requirements"
-exclusively- aimed at America Online members are fair to them, so I made the
decision not to replace your old entry with the new, discriminatory one.
