原zhonghua list将于2013年5月20日关闭,新的中华网mailing group已经开始运行

(转载)

感谢zhonghua list管理员的支持。

新的中华网mailing group已经开始运行,注册用户已达2百人左右。但是请同学们注意,原来中华网邮件的登记用户不是自动转到新的中华网mailing group。您需要重新注册!

需要注册的同学,请发邮件到:

lists@zhong-hua-net.com

并在title或subject处写: subscribe
(not case sensitive)

Email body里面不需要任何内容。

我不懂的具体的技术问题,但是已经有volunteer帮助这个新中华网的邮件服务器写code和做技术支持。衷心感谢大家的支持。因为新邮件系统才运行两天,难免存在问题,如果有任何不便,请谅解。如果同学们有任何的建议,请发给chengstewart@hotmail.com,我们的技术支持会尽快解决您提出问题或采纳您的建议。

目前有几个问题:
1)如果您注册的方式不对,比如说subject处的”subscribe” 拼写有错误,code会当作广告发给大家。技术支持现在已经将几个常见的拼写错误考虑到code中了。为了避免写错,同学们可以考虑copy-paste.
2)有同学向我们建议不出现发帖人的原邮件地址(像craigslist那样),目前技术支持正在做这个。现在暂时将发帖人的邮件列在下面,以后会改善这个情况。
3)请同学们不要随意发邮件测试,尤其在目前的试运行期间。
4)最关键的一点:正如原管理员Wei同学指出的,为了让新中华网以后不出现原中华网遇到的同样问题,请大家在想退出的时候,正确操作,而不是简单的屏蔽或举报spam。

想申请退出时,请发邮件给上边的邮件地址: lists@zhong-hua-net.com, 在subject 处写

un-subscribe

(not case sensitive), code 会自动的把您的邮件地址从list中消除。
如果同学们有任何问题,请发给chengstewart@hotmail.com

再次感谢大家的支持!

 

附:原zohnghua list关闭原因:

May 13, 2013

Hi All,

I am writing to inform you that the zhong_hua list will be shut down on
Monday, May 20th, 2013.

The main reason is this list has been affecting email traffic related
to our department business.  (As you may know, the Dept. of Computer
Science hosts and runs the list.)  Long story short, some
subscribers are refusing to receive messages from zhong_hua, rendering
emails be bounced back. This led to some popular external service providers (for example, hotmail and gmail) to believe that cs.ubc.ca is a malicious domain.  As a result, traffic from cs to hotmail/gmail has experienced difficulty getting through, and as it turns out, we cannot
compeletely resolve the issue without shutting the list down.

The Department of Computer Science has generously hosted and supported
zhong_hua list for more than a decade.  Our users have gone way beyond
students and scholars within the department, and possibly even UBC.   As
much as we wish to continue this service, it has to come to an end due to
the aforementioned negative effects on the department’s business.

We suggest users consider alternative existing platforms such as Google
Groups or Craigslists.

Thank you for your understanding.

– zhong_hua list manager.
