Eastbay Astronomical Society's own listserv

Thanks to the efforts of Bruce Skelly, EAS has its own listserv* on the Internet. Here's the introductory information you need to find out what it is, and how to access it:

The EastbayAstro group at Yahoo! Groups, is a free, easy-to-use email group service. Please take a moment to review this message.

This group was created as a communications tool for members of the Eastbay Astronomical Society. To see the group, go to

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EastbayAstro

To start sending messages to members of this group,
simply send email to

EastbayAstro@yahoogroups.com

If you do not wish to belong to EastbayAstro, you may
unsubscribe by sending an email to

EastbayAstro-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com

You may also visit the Yahoo! Groups web site to modify your subscriptions:

SPECIAL NOTE FROM Yahoo! Groups: Because Yahoo! Groups values your privacy, it is a violation of our service rules for moderators to add subscribers to a group against their wishes. If you feel this has happened, please notify us at abuse@yahoogroups.com

*Listservs are very handy things indeed, when used properly. Computer users with Internet access and email sign up to the listserv(s) of their choice(s). It could be a listserv about stamp collecting, photography, astronomy, brain surgery, whatever. Then, when they (or anyone else signed up with that listserv) sends a message to it, everyone else signed up gets that message sent to them. You can learn a lot from group discussions on these listservs. It's a great way to send out a notice to an entire community quickly and cheaply. BUT, you also have to be careful; if politics or differing opinions get the blood boiling, then a "flame war" can break out, and what was once a lively debate can disintegrate into a virtual slug-fest! But, that's not too likely with a group of amateur astronomers (is it?) ?
