Joining AFED

Hi, I'm interested in joining the Anarchist Federation. I've tried contacting the email addresses given on the website, but for some reason my emails "fail to send" every time, and I have even tried contacting AFED on facebook with no luck either. I don't think I'm near any groups, unfortunately, but I hope I can still get involved anyway.

did you add the @ symbol to the email address where it says [at] and take out ht spaces?

Yes, and I tried both "join@afed.org.uk" and "info@afed.org.uk".

If it helps solve the problem, this is the message I got (I don't know what it means):

That's hushmail being blacklisted by the afed email provider. That's unfortunate but if you can you should try using a different email address. (I'm not afed)

I actually tried that! No reply either! I don't think the gods approve of my choices.

J,M & J - if someone hasn't pm'ed R. Mark - please do! On the other hand, R. Mark, please show some initiative, there's some clear and obvious posters from AFed on here. Apologies for being brusque, but this is basic admin.

sorry but this is out of order, it would not be clear to most people who is in AF and who isn't, even after posting on here for a while. If the AF e-mail isn't working properly that's ultimately our problem which we should sort out.

R Mark, thanks for posting here, if you private message me your e-mail address I'll pass it on so someone can get back to you!

Apologies about the problems!

Thanks, can you send me a message which I can reply to? I can't figure out how to send pm's (yes, I really am being this thick).

There's no "send this user a message" link showing up for me on the profile page...

R. Mark - try now, I've bumped your account to 'regular user' (I think PMs are disabled for posters with less than a certain number of posts to stop spammers signing up and privately spamming everyone).

Yep, that's done it, thank you. Sorry for the inconvenience, you can delete this thread now I guess.

Yeah sorry R. Mark for being grumpy - I'm not really, it's not meant as an attack at yourself - more a stomach felt frustration with the general crapness that anarchists are at being business-like. (And certainly not an attack at the AFed). Makes me understand why people end up left-communists. Anyway, pass the Valium and welcome.

Is this the best start for a prospective AFed member ever? A whole public thread dedicated to my communications incompetence!
