Re: <nettime> Nettime-bold is <bleep>

dear cpaul,

the whole thing is really easy; you create a mailing list that 
receives everything sent to nettime-l as a forward; this list is 
nettime-bold, and you and others can subscribe, communicate etc. on 
it, as well as push stuff from bold to nettime-l. however, if _you_ 
don't create and maintain this list, _somebody else_ will have to do 
it, and i fully understand that the current moderators don't want to 
be that 'somebody'. maintaining a successful list, incl. 
communication with confused subscribers, surprised sys-ops, and an 
ever-growing amount of spam, is time-consuming, and i am surprised 
why people are not more inventive when it comes to creating 
alternative channels.

all you need to do is ask the nettime mods for including

forward inc {AT} fastmedia.net

and you get the whole thing unfiltered. become a bold archivist!
