Subject:        How to Start Your Own listserv

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

During my sixteen years association with SHAKSPER, I have noticed that
some members appear to be interested in a single topic, for example
*Hamlet,* to the exclusion of all others and, therefore, seldom if ever
contribute to any discussion other than to that one special interest.
Because my time, talent, and treasure are responsible for bringing this
list to the members, I sometimes get impatient with those who seem to be
exclusively concerned with their special theory or agenda, like

To anyone to whom this characterization applies, I offer you my
considerable experience in explaining how you can start your own
listserv or newsgroups. When I decided no longer to post submissions
about other candidates for authorship of Shakespeare's works, some
Oxfordians founded the humanities.lit.authors.shakespeare newsgroup.

Not only will I share my knowledge but I will also let anyone interested
use SHAKSPER to make a reasonable number of announcements of the
list's/group's existence to alert potential members of the opportunity
to join.
