	Greetings!  My name is Adam Parrish.  I've been a mailing list
enthusiast for a long while.  Currently I'm taking a technical writing
class here at Weber State University, and in this class the instructor
requires each student to write a paper on an electronic discussion group
that relates to their desired field.  I have chosen to write a report
to help the students along in finding and participating in mailing lists.

	If you would, please consider the following questions:

	- What are the most common problems that first-time mailing list
subscribers have when trying to get on a list?  How can these be avoided?
	- How long should a first-time subscriber observe a list before
trying to participate in discussion?  What is the best way to present
yourself to a mailing list when trying to get specific answers?
	- Are there any problems that people have unsubscribing from
your mailing lists?  How can these be avoided?
	- What, in your opinion, are the major advantages of mailing
lists over other collaborative electronic media, i.e., newsgroups,
web-boards, etc.?

	I'm sure you've discussed issues like this before on this mailing
list, but I'm hoping to spark a little discussion. :)  If you have any
more information regarding mailing lists and mailing list technology that
you would like to share, please contact me.

Thanks for your help,
Adam Parrish
