. Available List Commands
.
The list software accepts a number of direct commands which may prove quite helpful during personal research.  Commands are executed simply by sending blank email messages to the appropriate "command address".  That is, the address and the command are the same.  Except for messages sent to earthships-owner, no subject or body content is necessary.  Here are the currently available commands:
.
earthships-info@taosinteractive.com
This command will return some general information about how this list is set up and why, as well as a small amount of information about the list moderator.  It is generally the same information you will find in about this list.
.
earthships-faq@taosinteractive.com
This command will return a list of frequently asked questions about earthships. It is highly recommended that you review the FAQ before posting questions to the list.
.
earthships-subscribe@taosinteractive.com
This command starts the subscription process for the email address from which it was sent.  The list will send you a confirmation request, and once you reply to it a moderator will screen it and send it through if you check out.  This brief initial screening is done in the interest of reducing spam.  Please see earthships-info for more detailed information on the operation of the list.
.
earthships-subscribe-user=isp.ext@taosinteractive.com
This command is a request to subscribe an email address other than the one you are currently sending from. Useful if you use multiple email accounts and want them all to receive the list. To construct the command, take your email address (user@isp.ext), substituting your particular user name, isp name, and ext, and replace the "@" sign with an "=" sign so it reads user=isp.ext. Now take that entire result and swap it with the word "REPLACE" in the following command: earthships-subscribe-REPLACE@taosinteractive.com
.
earthships-digest-subscribe@taosinteractive.com
This command starts the digest subscription process for the email address from which it was sent.  See the 'subscribe' command for more information.
.
earthships-unsubscribe@taosinteractive.com
This command will unsubscribe the email address you are currently posting from.
.
earthships-unsubscribe-user=isp.ext@taosinteractive.com
This command is a request to unsubscribe an email address other than the one you are currently sending from.  See the instructions for subscribing an address other than your own above to generate the proper command address. This will also work for the email address you are currently using.
.
earthships-digest-unsubscribe@taosinteractive.com
This command ends the digest subscription for the email address from which it was sent.  See the 'unsubscribe' command for more information.
