RE: [EFM] reflector usage
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
p.s. Clearly it remains the responsibility of all participants to decide which reflector is best for any particular thread.

| Dear Members of the IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force,
| as you know, we have multiple email reflectors available
| for our use. We have the firstname.lastname@example.org
| reflector, which is used for announcements and discussions
| of general interest.
| We also have reflectors for each of our sub task forces,
| such as the email@example.com reflector
| and the firstname.lastname@example.org reflector for
| the optical PMD and point to multipoint protocol sub
| task forces, respectively.
| Some task force members find it annoying to receive
| multiple copies of email messages. This is often caused
| by the unnecessary inclusion of multiple email reflector
| addresses on the distribution list. As an example, there
| is no need to send a message to both email@example.com,
| and ANY of the sub task force reflectors, since 99% of the
| folks on a sub task force reflector are also on the primary
| task force reflector. Please try to limit the distribution of
| messages to the extent possible. Many of us are inundated
| with email messages, and even the simple chore of deleting
| a bunch of duplicate messages wastes time unnecessarily.
| Thanks for your cooperation.
| Howard Frazier
| Chair, IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force
