There must be some technical complication. However, I do receive your 
mail via the list, sent from the address larryesu at
This means, you ARE STILL a member of the list - however, there must be 
some complication you can possibly resolve by following the instructions

The Ubuntu list is still alive and kicking, with dozens of mails per 
day... :-)

What springs into my mind is this: the Ubuntu user list is being managed 
via Mailman. Mailman contains an option to disable maildelivery without 
unsubscribing, by example because of holiday. May be, the mail delivery 
has been disabled because of some error or mistake.
I advise you to act as folllows:
go to
Scroll until nearly the bottom of the page. There you will see a button 
'Unsubscribe OR EDIT OPTIONS'
Fill in your e-mail address in the field left of this button.
Than press the button 'Unsubscribe OR EDIT OPTIONS'.

Quickly you will receive an e-mail telling you what to do next. After 
following those instructions, you will arrive at a kind of personal 
page, where you can edit your options. May be you need to ENABLE the 
mail delivery of the list.

If the steps described above do not work, please, write to the list 
administrators via the address ubuntu-users-owner at
Respectfully Yours,
