an on-line discussion group
One of the
most popular attractions on the Internet are the e-mail lists. When
you become a member of a list, you join a community of like minded
souls talking about...well, that depends on the group :-) Some lists
encourage chitchat, others like the members to stay on topic (for
the most part) be it sockknitting or "Now that the dog is done
with it, what do I do now?"
you write to the list, everyone on the list will get a copy of your
message. And you will get a copy of every message the other members
send to the list. On some lists the amount of traffic is quite high...you
may wish to create a special folder in you Inbox just for listmail
so you can keep it separate and read it at you leisure. Not everyone
enjoys coming home from work to find 200 NEW MESSAGES in their Inbox.
Let me know if you need instructions on how to create a folder in
your mail program.
Go to YahooGroups
and do a search on the word "knitting." Just did
it a minute ago and it came up with 102 groups that have something
to do with knitting...everything from knitting shop owners to knitters
with arthritis. When I get a new passion, I usually join several
lists, and after listening for a few days, am able to decide which
one interests me.
