> 	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
