It is NOT necessary to subscribe to read or post messages. That all can be done now from the website at http://www.adhesions.org/forum
The entire subscription list does get messages as they are posted by either the web form or by mailing them to email@example.com. That is actually a very useful feature and I recommend not removing it. All OBGYN.net forums work this way without problem.
This isn't an issue now since anybody can add or remove themselves from the subscription list whenever they wish. To do that go to the web page http://www.adhesions.org/forum/listcmds.html#commands and click on "unsubscribe".
It is also possible to request email in digest format which is only 1 message per day with all the messages sent concatenated together. To do that go to the web page http://www.adhesions.org/forum/listcmds.html#commands and click on "digest".
Good luck on the adhesions discussions.
