About these Mailing Lists
There are many email lists on canines and related topics. They are all
implemented in different ways. Some are handled by automated software
(of which there are several varieties!) and others are manually
controlled. Some lists are open to all, others have requirements for
membership, or even ceilings on the total number of subscribers. Some
are high volume and others much lower. Some of these lists offer both
interactive (where you get each message as it is sent out) and digest
(where messages are collected up to some point, either by size or
time, and then sent out) versions.
The actual manner in which you subscribe to each list can differ. I've
tried to make it very clear how to do so for each list below. When I
state that "your-name" is desired, that's your real name. For example,
I would substitute "your-name" with Cindy Tittle Moore if I subscribed
to a list with that in the instructions. If "your-email-address" is
requested, that would be your email address. Again, for example, I
would use firstname.lastname@example.org for "your-address". A few do not require
either your name or your email address: in these cases, don't add this
information, it is extracted from your email directly.
Other lists are NOT automated, and are contacted by request addresses
that are maintained by real live people, so a short request like
"Please add me to the herding list." is appropriate for these lists.
Please do not send mail directly to the list asking to be added or
deleted from the list. It's poor form because your request gets spit
out to all the subscribers on the list; creating unnecessary bandwidth
and putting useless email into mailboxes around the world. Moreover,
many list administrators simply ignore these messages. So use the
contact addresses provided! And when you get welcoming information
from the list after subscribing SAVE THIS INFORMATION. It will provide
you with information on how to unsubscribe from the list when you wish
to do so.
Since not all automated lists are run with the same software, please
don't expect the same functionality across all of them. For example,
on some lists you might "postpone" your email while you are on
vacation. On others you simply unsubscribe and then resubscribe when
you return. So read through any information you get from the
Watch out for the common error of substituting the numeral 1 for the
letter l. I've tried to make this clear by capitalizing wherever it
seemed appropriate below.
Finally note that subscription may be arbitrated by the list owner or
administrator at any time. Should a list owner decide that a
particular individual should not be subscribed or remain subscribed,
that is their prerogative. Inflammatory posts, baiting, flaming other
individuals, spamming, or conducting commercial activities on the list
are typical grounds for removal. Most lists make their preferences
known in the welcome file.
If you are interested in starting up a dog-related mailing list, first
consult with the providers of your account. Many are willing to let
you run a list under their Listserv or Majordomo software already
installed. Most will do it for free (as part of your account "perks").
Some may charge you for setting it up. If you look around you may also
be able to find some free or for-charge options.
Please note that there are a number of dog oriented mailing lists run
at www.egroups.com. I did not originally list them because they
initially required a web browser to subscribe. They have since added
email subscription requests, so go ahead and ask me to add them. You
can also go directly there and search on the dog lists they have to
see if you can find what you're looking for.
