Church History Gems - Funny Footer

Postby segbert » Fri Nov 30, 2007 2:01 pm

My wife just brought me a Church History Gems, and she noted something funny in the Subscription footer where you can subscribe, unsubscribe, or change your subscription. It says the following:

"If you do not have Internet access, send an e-mail to listserv@ . . . "

She and I are both wondering how one would send an e-mail if you don't have Internet access.:confused:

They are probably referring to people who don't have web browser access. If you have no access at all, including email access, then there's nothing to subscribe to.

Internet Access/Email Access

Postby mzundel-p40 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 9:53 am

There were some services offered by companies that broke out Internet Access (what they termed for using a web browser) and Email Access. One that comes to mind first offered Internet Access and Email Access for free. When I believe it was discovered that ads could not support this model, they started charging ~$10 for Internet Access but Email Access was still FREE.

With this in mind, the footer makes sense.
