Thanks for the offer, but I think these aren't useful for the  
database. (Ron Holl has also found a batch of paperback color  
variations.) It would appear that color variations in paperbacks are  
as common as color variations on the "B"-type DJ's of the 1930's.  
They evidently have no meaning and therefore aren't really useful

Heh. No, I suspect it's something else. Here are two reasons that  
mail would get bounced (at least I think these would get you bounced):

1) The return address on the e-mail is different from the one you  
used to register.
2) The -mail you send contains some html tags that the majordomo  
system thinks is too weird to deal with.
