A few more things not to do:
Subscribing and Unsubscribing to the ListPlease use the (UN)SUBCRIPTION FORM
Because of the aggressive policies of hotmail.com, outlook.com and (windows)live.com, these email addresses will no longer be allowed to subscribe to the Commlist. This also applies to their aliases in other domains but .com (for example hotmail.co.uk and live.cn). If you want to subscribe to the commlist, you will have to use a different email address.
Please also make sure that your provider has the commlist.org domain whitelisted.The Commlist is an independent project. For a few years, during the list manager's vice-presidency there, the Commlist was affiliated with the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA). Please note that Commlist postings will not reach the entire ECREA membership, although there is some overlap. Being subscribed to the Commlist definitely does not result in ECREA membership.
All information posted on the Commlist, and all requests for postings are public.
The Commlist is a non-commercial project. The information distributed by the commlist should never be used for commercial purposes, and/or to generate financial benefits, for individuals nor for organisations. This includes the practice of harvesting Commlist posting and then only offering them to paying customers and/or members. In contrast, the circulation of Commlist information in other, non-commercial, environments is very much welcomed. This includes the forwarding of Commlist material to other academic and open access mailing lists.
Subscribing to the Commlist, or requesting a posting on the Commlist, implies agreement with all mailing list guidelines.

The distribution of postings on the mailing list does not guarantee their accuracy or legitimacy. Subscribers to (and readers of) the mailing list are invited to always doublecheck the information (e.g., with the organisers, or editors).
