Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have recently set up a newsgroup for my fraternity the
Freemasons. This newsgroup is moderated in form and therefore the
propagation of messages is more difficult as we only have one
injection point per moderator, as opposed to each participant being a
possible injection point.
This leads to much disappointment as messages get missed by
people who are on ISP's which receive messages poorly from one of the
Anyhow, I am wondering about the possibility of finding
someone or some organization that has a Majordomo running and would be

In case you are wondering "what are the Freemasons?" Well, we
are a fraternity, the largest international fraternity. We donate
over a million dollars per day to charities as well as providing other
services in the communities we are in (as an example, child
identification programs for the FBI and children's parents; Blood
drives; the Shriner Hospitals are run by Masons.) While we do this we
encourage our members to be the best possible citizens they can be.
So, if anybody is in a position to donate this, or just want
more information on us, I hope you will email me.
