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


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