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,
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,
. ---- --- -- - - - -
