[REBOL] eGroups Rebol-List replacement list Re:(2)

From: jackseay:earthlink at: 13-Oct-2000 22:46

I've started 9 egroups lists and am a member of 52 others. Spam is non-existant all all the lists I am on. Most of them I just consult once in a while online to update myself. Some I keep on hand for occasional reference. A few I actually download in my mail program. They are incredibly easy to set up and maintain and are easy to change options for both moderators and members. Plus each list has 20M of file space, surveys, calenders, etc. However, if anyone wants to set up other lists and web pages, go for it. I am not saying that egroups is as good as it can possibly get, just explaining my experience with it. I believe better things are yet to come, and I will welcome them when they do. I also like the idea of all the specific lists. Great idea Andrew. [mdinowit--i-2000--com] said at [REBOL] eGroups Rebol-List replacement list Re:. [Oct/13/2000Fri 11:13] -Let me start by being totally honest and saying I hate egroups as -they are a -hidden spam engine. Let me also say that I run a listserver out of -HouseofFusion.com for ColdFusion and JRun lists and its been going -very -well. I've also got the domain name RebolBase.com (being designed -now, not -mapped). I'd be quite happy to set up lists for Rebol by me rather -than by -egroups. - - -> Rishi wrote: -> > Otherwise, what shall we call this discussion group? -> -> Call me impetuous, but I went ahead and made a replacement list at -eGroups -> for this list: -> -> Post message: [Rebol-List--egroups--com] -> Subscribe: [Rebol-List-subscribe--egroups--com] -> Unsubscribe: [Rebol-List-unsubscribe--egroups--com] -> List-owner: [Rebol-List-owner--egroups--com] -> Rebol-List-URL: http://www.egroups.com/group/Rebol-List -> -> Would anyone else like to be co-moderator, just in case I get run -over by -> bus?
