I have been meaning to write a FAQ for months now to post to
news.announce.newusers and have just never gotten around to it. Too
many other projects going on (several which I've decided to shut down,
like most of my newsreading) and I always shuffled it to the backburner.
In it I plan to describe what mailing lists are, moderated vs. open,
manual vs. managed with a listserver, the most common flavours of
listservers, how to subscribe and unsubscribe, how to contact the list
manager and a brief rundown of list etiquette.
Woo, a bit more complex than it sounds on the surface. I'll get to it
one of these days.
