To quote our list guidelines (listguide.ixda.org) ...
"If you are going away on vacation or business, please set your Mail
Delivery option to Disabled on your Mailing List Membership Configuration
page. For instructions, see IxD Discussion Help (listhelp.ixda.org).
Please be aware of the impact on other list subscribers if you set up your
email application to send automatic replies while you are away. If the list
receives automatic replies from your email application, our list
administrators must unsubscribe you from IxD Discussion. Then you must
subscribe again to continue participating in the discussion."
So I please beg that people follow the instructions in the list
help,available at the following URL before they set their "Out of Office"
Thank you, it really is annoying when you post a message and get 10 messages
from people out of the office (that's all anyone posting), then there are
the posts that so far have not snuck through to the list itself, but if you
have ever posted to the list, they could depending on how your
auto-responder decides to deal with reply-to information.
