Well, NOW I know why I've not gotten any mail from my recent subscription to the R:Base mailing list. GoDaddy must be blocking these, as I've not received one, but after signing up via my Gmail account, 2 have hit my inbox.
Turns out if you perform a search on "GoDaddy email issues" you will get many results. *sigh* I thought we'd get decent hosting out of them, but this is just unacceptable.
Reading a few flames of them reveals that they have taken steps on a genocidal level to control spam.
I even found this smart article outlining a method of using Google Apps to host your mail, instead of GoDaddy!

...in this hemisphere that is using R:Base. Although I'm sure if the other person using it reads this, I'll get flamed.
I've posted a comment to the "mailing list", and have further convinced myself I'm the only one, next to the list admin, that has subscribed to this list, as my post rendered no comments, and I've not received any messages over a 72 hour period.
Since this version (6.5) has few functions as compared to that of some other programming languages I've used, and interacting with the data in the form I've been forced to, I will admit to learning more about fundamental SQL data manipulation, use of Cursor's, SQL functions, etc.
I'll have to say overall it's been a satisfying experience, in that it has exercised my brain. Without the luxury of having peer support or newsgroup forums to draw from, I've had to rely solely on the sparse documentation (few examples), and my past coding experience (few examples).
