NEWS YOU CAN USE
By Dave Horn
If you've ever wished you could instantaneously send a letter to hundreds of people and then read what they have to say about your thoughts, then Internet mailing lists are for you. Several large mailing lists for vegetarians are buzzing in cyberspace right now. Here are three of my favorites:
VEGAN-L is a worldwide list for vegans and aspiring vegans; it has about 320 subscribers right now. I get about 20 messages per day from people on it. To subscribe, send e-mail to email@example.com; write "subscribe" in the subject line and write the following command in the body of your e-mail message (substituting, of course, your own name for "Jane Doe"):sub vegan-l Jane Doe
Veg-single is a worldwide list that focuses on issues of being a single vegetarian. I get five to 10 messages a day from it. Recent topics have included the challenge of dating omnivores, how to get good vegetarian food from non-vegetarian restaurants and how to cook vegetarian food on the cheap. To subscribe, send e-mail to veg-sin firstname.lastname@example.org and write "subscribe" in the subject line and write the following command in the body of your e-mail message (substituting your own e-mail address for "Jane Doe@aol.com"): subscribe veg-single JaneDoe@aol.com
Veg-NYC is for vegetarians in the New York area. Recent topics have included upcoming good NYC restaurants and local vegetarian events. To subscribe, send e-mail to email@example.com; write "subscribe" in the subject line and write the following command in the body of your e-mail message (substituting your own e-mail address for "Jane Doe@aol.com"): subscribe veg-nyc JaneDoe@aol.com
