The Green End Usual Suspects list is a mailing list that a few people use when inviting people to certain private events.
If you want to be removed from the list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by email stating that you wish to be removed from the usual suspects list. When you have been removed, you will receive an email confirming this.
Most people get on the list because one of the list users asks for them to be added. If someone asks that you be added, you will receive an email indicating who asked for you to be added.
If you are known to the maintainer, then it may be sufficient for you to send email to email@example.com asking to be added. However, if you are not known to the maintainer, this approach is unlikely to work; the maintainer will probably forward your request to the list users for their consideration.
Asking the maintainer in person will never, ever work; please use email.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the name and email address of the person you would like to be added. You should be sure that they are happy with this. If you are not known to the maintainer, your request may be forwarded to the list users for consideration.
Just send your message to email@example.com. The maintainer will check that the message is suitable, possibly discussing this with you and/or the list users, and if it is determined to be appropriate, forward the message to the list. No special formatting is required. Example:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Your name here) To: email@example.com Subject: party at Acacia Avenue, 30th February You are invited to a party at 123 Acacia Avenue on Saturday at 8pm. Please bring a bottle.
You are encouraged to leave plenty of time for this, as the maintainer is only human and works to his own schedule.
The intent of the list that it be used it for party invites and the like. There are no hard-and-fast rules, but you are requested to follow these guidelines regarding events advertised to the list:
If in doubt, email firstname.lastname@example.org well before you need to send the message out.
Contact the maintainer and explain why you need to know.
Normally it would be more sensible to mail the people you want to mail directly, but if you think usual-suspects needs to be involved for some reason then contact the maintainer and explain what you want.
The current maintainer is Richard Kettlewell. Normally if you want to contact the maintainer regarding the list you should send email to email@example.com.
