The Social List
The Social List was created when the Tech List started receiving a large number of off-topic postings. We encourage you to use the Social List to post roommate searches, non-tech job listings, notices about yard sales, ads for pet adoptions, and similar items of interest. The Social List is community moderated and its guidelines are more relaxed than the Tech List’s guidelines.
Before you post, please make sure the Social List is the most appropriate list for your message. If you are not sure, please contact a list moderator. Do not post the same message to both the Tech and Social lists! Only Steering Committee members are allowed to post the same message to both lists.
Please visit the List Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
The list etiquette is the same for both lists. However, most non-tech topics are open for discussion on the Social List.
The following topics are prohibited on the Social List:
- Chain letters
- Selling or sharing of software
- Virus warnings
- Requests for jobs or job leads
If you have any questions, please contact a list moderator.
