Well, non-professionally, I also subscribe to the Battlestar Galactica
mailing list (one of the best shows ever -- think of the Cylons as big
metal Groos.  Professionally, I also subscribe to the Trombone-l mailing
list and the Brass Instruments mailing list.  The trombone list gets
really nasty sometimes (you know how it is when you get more than 2
trombone players in a room together at any one time).  I used to be a very
active participant on the list, giving advice and help and asking
questions I've had as well.  Now the list has grown in popularity and
size, plus everyone and their grandmother has email these days, and I
can't post anything without getting flamed or having a smarta** remark
made about me.  I'm not talking "in-good-fun" remarks either.  These got
really bad.   So the rest of the oldtimers and myself, plus all the
professionals (I'm not even close to being in their class) respond
privately to most queries.

Curious about the rest of you guys as well.
