ADMIN> Creating new posts on H-Buddhism

Dear H-Buddhism Subscribers:

In terms of using the new system, it is very important that when you have a new post to send to the list, that you go to the web site and start by creating a new post. You should *not* create a new post by replying to an incoming post. If you do that, it will be filed as part of a discussion under the post you have replied to, even though it has nothing to do with that post.
