Before you start, please read the Usenet Netiquette rules posted at Usenet References.
Then read the Usenet description posted at What is Usenet?

The penalties for failing to follow the rules are interesting in a Chinese Proverb sort of way, and include having your email account swamped with angry replies from hundreds of readers.

An email support list is a group of people who "talk" via email. Members send email to one address, then the email gets sent out to all the members. A few terms you need to know:

Private list
A list where the owner decides on a member-by-member basis whether to allow applicants to join the list.
Public list
A list where anyone can join and there is little privacy.
Moderated list
A list where the owner approves each post.
Unmoderated list
A list where posts are sent out unedited and uncensored.
Rude or insulting posts. These can get you banned from a list.
Being removed from a list and prevented from rejoining.

Madness Mailing List

MADNESS is an electronic action and information discussion list for people who experience moods swings, fright, voices, and visions (People Who). MADNESS creates an electronic forum and distribution device for exchanging ways to change political systems that touch People Who, and for distributing any information and resources that might be useful. A basic premise of science and research is also a value of MADNESS: to share your findings with others.
Subscriptions to BPSO -- a support list primarily for non-bipolar spouses, parents, and other loved-ones -- are not presently being accepted in order to keep the list at a manageable size. For further information contact bpso-owner@ipl.co.uk.
iris (information, referral, and internet sightings) is a People Who one-way announcement list. Discussions may take place on various related lists. Messages are announcements of conferences and news of interest to people who experience mood swings, fear, voices and visions; occasional forwards from other lists; some URL's; sometimes a quotation; some times a political call to action.

Subscribe from the web or use email to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu to send the command subscribe iris

Iris is the goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the gods.
