Presumably "" has a name of his own other than that and "God
Bless." Our list protocol, that is mailed out to all new subscribers when
they first come aboard, specifically asks all subscribers to identify
themselves clearly AT LEAST in the "From" header, but we would prefer to
have it also in a regular full signature.

     4. Signatures: It is a courtesy expected of B-Greek subscribers that
messages should indicate, at least in the "From" header, the personal name
as well as the e-address, or else should at least sign their posts with
personal names. Indications of the locality from which they write would
help personalize further for others the sender of a message. Academic or
institutional information may be appended also, but there is no privilege
associated with any academic or institutional status so-indicated.

In other words, we neither solicit nor do we readily tolerate anonymous
contributions. Thanks for your cooperation.
