I usually follow this list pretty closely, but I must have missed 
something.  Who was giving you trouble?  Looks like you managed to join.

Maybe the TAPR folks can answer this, but where is the policy written 
that only hams can join this list?  I don't see it on the subscription 
form.  I can't think of any reason it should be a requirement to discuss 

I can understand some confusion on the part of the moderators when your 
email account says Patrick Domack and your legal name is apparently 
Danatone R Swett.  Still, I don't see why it should matter for the 
purposes of a public email reflector.
