Subject: Film/TV/Media Discussion Groups

I was recently revising our list of film/TV/media discussion groups and I
came across several new ones. So, I thought maybe Screen-Lers would be
interested in seeing the entire list:

SOME DISCUSSION LIST BASICS: HOW TO SUBSCRIBE

Most discussion lists have two addresses: (1) the address where
messages are sent in order to be forwarded to the list's subscribers,
and (2) the address where the software running the list lives,
where subscription requests and the like may be sent.

Many discussion lists are run by software called LISTSERV.
To subscribe to any of these lists, send e-mail to the LISTSERV that
runs the list. Please note that the LISTSERV address is slightly
different from the address of the list itself.

If the list address is, for example:

CINEMA-L@AUVM.AMERICAN.EDU

Then the LISTSERV that runs CINEMA-L's address will be:

LISTSERV@AUVM.AMERICAN.EDU

Thus, to subscribe you would address mail to the LISTSERV's address
and put the following command in the body of the message (not the
subject header):

SUBSCRIBE listname your-name

Replace "listname" with CINEMA-L or whichever list you're joining and
replace "your-name" with your name as you'd like it to appear on the
list. Thus, if I were subscribing to CINEMA-L, I'd send in the following:

SUBSCRIBE CINEMA-L Jeremy Butler

Now, if you want a big ol' list of lists you can have one
mailed to you by sending e-mail to any LISTSERV (note: use the LISTSERV's
address, not a list's like CINEMA-L's) with the following command:

LIST GLOBAL

Send this to, say, LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU, and you'll get a file mailed
to you with a one-line description of every LISTSERV list known to
man and woman.

LISTSERV is the most widespread of list server software, but many
other types are also out there. The film/TV discussion lists
above may have different subscription routines, but all work
similarly: just send in a subscription command and stand back.
