There was some discussion on rec.scouting about starting a usenet newsgroup for
the discussion of items of purely OA interest. Since the topics that would
be open for discussion include some areas that the OA seeks to keep 'secret'
from non-members (in order to retain the aura of mystery around ceremonies), it
was then suggested that perhaps a mail list would be better.
Since nobody else volunteered, I have started such a list from my account here
at New Mexico Tech. Anybody who wishes to join (and is in OA) should send
a request to email@example.com. I will then send a short survey to verify that
you are a member of the OA and to get some information for my records. Since
I am running it without any listserv software, items posted to the list do
depend upon my availability to take care of my mail.
If anybody has any information on how to set up a listserv type list, please
e-mail me so that I can cut down somewhat on the administrative overhead and
so that the list will better serve its members.
