and there's an option to 
    "don't get mail for the time being"
which I really recommend for people going away for a while who
don't even want to receive daily digests.

You can unset that option when you come back
(more easily than subscribe anew) and it gives a bit better
statistics about the number of R-help subscribers ;-)

-- and BTW: messages like the original shouldn't even make it to
   be posted the list; I do try trashing them before they waste everyone's
   time. At least subscribers should find out where to send such
   mails.  But this one slipped through my filters ...

You can have all emails with "[R]" in the subject line routed to your very own "R-help Folder" (which you can create).  Then visit that folder whenever you want to get in on a good convo or learn new tricks.
