I've launched many email lists over the years, mostly Mac-related. The lists for Mac Standard Basic (begun June 1997) and REALbasic (started October 1, 1997) have taken on lives of their own independent of me and Low End Mac. We moved our email lists to Google Groups in 2006.
Be sure to read our guide to netiquette before posting to any group.
