Issues at DS-Hum

Because the subscriber bases for H-Disability and DS-Hum have some overlap, I've agreed to share a message from Virginia Bemis (the DS-Hum moderator) about what's happening over there.  Apparently, if your message gets rejected or you get unsubscribed, it's not your fault--there's something going on with their server.  (She mentions Yahoo below, but it might be other addresses too, from what I'm hearing.) They're trying to fix it. 

Here's the message from Virginia:

Dear listers
We have a terrible problem with Yahoo.  Just about everybody with a Yahoo address is getting messages bounced back, and several have been unsubscribed from the list by the UMD server robot.  We're trying to fix it, but it may take a while.
