  LISTSERV and discussion lists via e-mail only
   A word on Listservs:
   A Listserv is a mailing list. When you are subscribed, you receive all
   messages posted to the list, until and unless you unsubscribe.
   Likewise, when you post a message to the list, it is recieved by all
   list subscribers.
   To (un)subscribe to a list, send an email to the address given, with
   the single line:
(un)subscribe listname your-full-name

   where 'listname' is the part of the posting address to the left of the
   Please do NOT post subscribe/unsubscribe requests to the lists. It
   _won't_ have the desired effect, but it _will_ irritate list members.
   Messages should be on subjects appropriate to the list. Inappropriate
   messages, and particularly advertisements, will generate nothing but
   ill-will. On the other hand, don't be shy to ask something just
   because "this may be a stupid question...". The largest volume of
   stupid messages typically comprises attempts to subscribe or
   A common source of minor annoyance on Lists arises when a perfectly
   good but perhaps rather narrow/technical question has been asked, and
   answers are posted. The answer may be exactly what the questioner
   wanted, but of little or no general interest to other readers. Many
   such answers are unintentionally posted, because that's what happens
   when you simply "reply" to a message (unless the author of the
   original message has explicitly set a Reply-to: line in the header).

They're offering 10 minutes with an enormous bouquet sufficient time to perfect the best angle and pose before the courier takes it back, The TJournal news blog reports. One account offers women a fleeting visit from 101 roses for 700 roubles ($12; 10).

Posting selfies with huge bouquets seemingly sent by a boyfriend or secret admirer has been a trend among Russian Instagram and VKontakte social network users for quite a while.

The 360 TV website contacted the master of one flower rental Instagram account, [url=]russian sexy girls[/url] Who insisted his service was real and had received many asks. He says the 10 minutes can be drawn out a little, But not consistently. "the most important thing to avoid is: 'I'm obtaining put some make up on and tidy up' and all that', according to him.

Another account that 360 TV contacted ended up being a joke set up to mock the new trend, And there was plenty of ridicule from Russians placing comments online. "the secret of a mysterious bunch of flowers from a stranger has been EXPOSED, Writes an individual on Twitter. "might be quintessence of modern values, Says an Instagram surfer, Who suggests similar service aimed at men: "A Rolex download, Two iPhones shared and a selfie taken in a Moscow office with a panoramic view.
