This is a semi-regular announcement of special interest group mailing lists for the VNese community.

Back when we had Vietnet, and now with SCV, there was always the problem of there being too many messages and people feeling lost or frustrated at not being able to discuss things they are interested in. A number of special interest groups (SIGs) were created to meet these needs. I will give a short description of each lists and then the instruction on how to join it.

These mailing lists are based at Saigon.COM, a machine in Sunnyvale (near San Jose, California). Saigon.COM is the first and original archive site for Vietnet. It is also the first Vietnet BBS in the world (started in 1984).

You can subscribe the old fashion way as below, or you can browse and subscribe to the lists online via the Web at Mail.

The names of the lists and their email addresses are:

The following lists use Majordomo as the mailing list manager. Please read the instructions carefully.

This is A(n Tu.c No'i Phe't. A mailing list for people to talk about whatever "No'i Phe't". Let me warn you that the conversation can get rather racy, risque' at times. Join it at your own discretion. The only restriction I place on the list is no flame wars, no name callings, and so on.
This is a list for the VNese singles, professionals or students. Although there are a number of married people in it. The focus is on issues relating to the VNese singles life.
