Internet Society bids me adieu -- briefly

And, in fact, it seems I was not alone

The e-mail from The Internet Society (ISOC) hit my inbox this afternoon with an unceremonious thud: "You have been unsubscribed from the ISOC-members-announce mailing list."

Huh? What? Why? I didn't ...

Now, granted, I have not attended ISOC meetings in recent years (ever, really) or offered the organization's activities much in the way of news coverage, but this banishment did catch me by surprise and I was at a loss to understand its motivation.

Then about an hour later came the second e-mail:

Hello,

I was doing some list maintenance on the isoc-members-announce list which caused unsubscribe messages to be sent to everybody on the list.

If you have received this message you can rest assured that you are still subscribed to isoc-members-announce.

I am very sorry for this mistake and hope I have not caused you undue concern.

Best regards,

Name Withheld to Protect the Careless

Phew.
