DUF-Digest -- Defensive Use of Firearms


About DUF-Digest
English (USA)

A digest - normally daily - of firearm-related news, with an emphasis on:

  • The right to keep and bear arms (RKBA);
  • The use of firearms in self-defense;
  • The appropriate use of tactics for self-defense;
  • The application of the basic rules of safety while exercising the RKBA.

As of March 13, 2014, in a further effort to reduce the "spam score" of these mailings, each day's Digest is usually split into three sections:

  • National Right to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA) issues;
  • State and local RKBA issues;
  • Defensive Gun Use (DGU), safety and miscellaneous firearm issues.

We know of delivery blocks by the following providers:

  • Apple (e.g., mac.com, icloud.com, netscape.com, me.com, etc.)
  • ATT (e.g., att.net, ameritech.net, bellsouth.net, pacbell.net, sbcglobal.net, etc.)
  • Microsoft (e.g., msn.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com, live.com, etc.)

If you have such an address, you will likely need a third-party webmail address - other than Hotmail - to receive Digest mailings.

Subscribing to DUF-Digest

Subscribe to DUF-Digest by filling out the following form. You will be sent email requesting confirmation, to prevent others from gratuitously subscribing you. Once confirmation is received, your request will be held for approval by the list moderator. You will be notified of the moderator's decision by email. This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is available only to the list administrator.

    You may enter a privacy password below. This provides only mild security, but should prevent others from messing with your subscription. Do not use a valuable password as it will occasionally be e-mailed back to you in cleartext.

    If you choose not to enter a password, one will be automatically generated for you, and it will be sent to you once you've confirmed your subscription. You can always request a mail-back of your password when you edit your personal options. Once a month, your password will be emailed to you as a reminder.

Changing your address
The server's software builds each subscription around an e-mail address. If you wish to change your address, unsubscribe the old address (see below), then resubscribe at the new address.
You may get more reliable delivery of these mailings by entering "duf-digest@lists.pongonova.org" in your address book and, if your ISP uses any sort of "safe sender" or "approved sender" list, entering "duf-digest@lists.pongonova.org" in it. If your ISP uses any contracted spam filter or firewall, such as Barracuda, enter "duf-digest@lists.pongonova.org" in the whitelist.
If you will receive these mailings in Gmail or Yahoo, you may initially find them in spam or junk folders. To keep this from reoccurring, you should find options to create filters that will no longer treat the mailings as spam. You may need to designate a new folder (e.g., "DUF") where they will subsequently be sent.
If you stop receiving these mailings without having taken any action to stop them, use your password to log in to your account. You may see that they are being blocked by your ISP or that your subscription has already been disabled due to excessive "bounces." In the latter case, you can try removing the check from the "nomail" box (alongside which you will see a "B," if that was the case). In either case, you need to contact your ISP, to complain that they are denying you service for which you pay.
