The Purpose of the Lists    top

The IAGLCWDC mailing lists are for news and discussion of gay/lesbian country western dance related information. This includes information and activities from any of our member clubs.

Please use other venues to communicate "other" business.

Both lists are moderated and material that is not country/western related may be returned.

Messages sent to the lists are not necessarily the views or opinions of the IAGLCWDC. The IAGLCWDC, its officers, its delegates, its members, and its member clubs assume no liability for the contents of ANY and/or all messages posted to the lists.

How the Lists Work and How To Join One    top

The IAGLCWDC manages two e-mail list services, hosted by QueerNet, for news and discussion of gay/lesbian country western dance clubs and related information. Both lists are moderated. They are:

  1. Discussion
  2. News
Normally, you would join only one of these mailing lists. But how do you decide which one you would like to join?

Following is a brief description of how each works.

  1. Discussion

    This is the "reflector" mailing list. This means that every time someone sends a message to the list, the message is immediately "reflected", or sent, to every "Discussion" subscriber's e-mail address. Only list members can send messages to the list, but all messages are moderated to make sure they are on topic.

  2. News

    This is the "news only" mailing list. It is used to send official news from the IAGLCWDC board of directors and includes info about future events from our member clubs. All messages from the "News" list will also be sent to the "Discussion" list. The news list is intended for people who don't want to receive the discussion messages.

After you have subscribed to one of the lists, you can set your subscription to Digest Mode. In Digest Mode all messages are grouped together and sent together as a single message. These Digest Mode messages are sent out at approximately 1:30 PM Pacific Time daily. Instructions on how to do this are here.

Have you decided which list is right for you?
