To make things clearer :

That email was about those who aren't subscribed yet (and thus don't 
receive this mail directly in their inbox). This includes people who only 
read the archives on the website, but this also includes people who might 
have been told about this mailing-list by subscribers, but don't know how 
it works.

This means that if you have friends whom you have told about this 
mailing-list, but you didn't tell them how to register, you should tell 
them ASAP.

Yes, I've already tried to contact quite a few of them, to verify whether 
they understood what was going on, but I'm seldom getting replies about 
them, so, obviously, I'm posting to lab at artengine.ca because I don't think 
that just writing to all individuals is something that works.

It seems to me as if there were still one or more "recruiters" for 
Artengine's Lab that just tell people to write to lab at artengine.ca without 
telling them about the subscription form, and I imagine that those 
recruiters are subscribed to this mailing-list.

(For any questions or to report technical problems about email on 
artengine.ca, please contact me privately.)
