Chances are pretty good that if you DON'T receive Conlang email during a period of time that the list is held. As a general rule of thumb: do not send a message to the list asking if the list is held. We won't see it until the list is released, and by that time, you'll already know that it's been released. And anyway, we're wasting 2 to 4% of the Daily Limit by asking and answering these questions every time the list does get held. If you feel that your email programme is acting wonky - please don't hesitate to send a private message to another Conlang member. Alternatively, if you're on Conculture or one of the other conlang related lists, you are more than welcome to ask there (as there's no daily limit on Yahoo groups). If the list is active, they'll let you know and you can sort out your problem. If it's held, they'll let you know that too and you needn't fret.
