RE: Life Cycle of a Mail List

I thought you folks might like to know a little bit more about "The Life
Cycle of a Mailing List" that was posted here recently. It has become
an internet classic, popping up wherever there is controversy about
what is "off-topic".

The original was written by Kat Nagel, and posted to Copyediting-L,
the first mailing list I participated in. I actually saw the *original*
posting (ooh--aah--). Copyediting-L has the *best* list culture of any
list I have participated in, and I modeled the Iris-L list policies on
what I had seen working so well there.

I'm sure many mailing lists owe much of their success and perhaps
even their survival to Kat's words of wisdom.

Enjoy the list, Tom.
