Dear networker,

Your subscription to list Y-RIGHTS (Discussion of the Rights of Youth) has
been accepted.

You may leave the list at any time by sending a “SIGNOFF Y-RIGHTS” command to
LISTSERV@SJUVM.  Please note that this command must NOT be sent to the list
address (Y-RIGHTS@SJUVM) but to the LISTSERV address (LISTSERV@SJUVM).

The  amount of acknowledgement you wish to  receive  from  this list  upon
completion of a mailing operation can be changed by means of  a “SET Y-RIGHTS
option” command, where “option” may be either “ACK” (mail acknowledgement),
“MSGACK” (interactive messages only) or “NOACK”.

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can obtain a
list of the  available archive files by sending an  “INDEX Y-RIGHTS” command to
LISTSERV@SJUVM. These  files can then be  retrieved by means of  a “GET Y-RIGHTS
filetype” command, or using the database search facilities of LISTSERV. Send an
“INFO DATABASE” command for more information on the latter.

Please note that  it is presently possible for anybody  to determine that you
are  signed up  to the  list through  the use  of the  “REVIEW” command,  which
returns the network address and name of all the subscribers. If you do not wish
your name to be available to others in this fashion, just issue a “SET Y-RIGHTS
CONCEAL” command.

More  information  on  LISTSERV  commands   can  be  found  in  the  “General
Introduction  guide”, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an “INFO  GENINTRO”
command to LISTSERV@SJUVM.
