Hi folks. I am thinking about starting a new discussion group to
discuss evolutionary psychology, human nature, human behavior, and
related subjects. We would discuss recent books we have read on these
subjects such as Steven Pinker's "The Blank Slate", Steven
LeBlanc's "Constant Battles: The Myth of the Peaceful, Noble
Savage", Timothy Wilson's "Strangers to Ourselves : Discovering the
Adaptive Unconscious" and any books on these and related subjects.
Evolution, especially the evolution of the human animal would also be
a favorite subject.
This would be a public, but moderated list. I have checked many
unmoderated lists and found them to be full junk posters and spam.
For instance the Evolutionary Psychology list is now being ruined by
a poster who just post junk posts, one after another. Such posts
would not be allowed and such violators of the rules would be banned
on the list I am proposing. But all posts relating to the subjects of
the list would be permitted.
The Evolutionary Psychology Forum is a great list but has been
getting very little traffic lately. There are at least two dozen
other Yahoo lists that deal with the subject but few, if any, of them
seem to have any traffic. A group, to be successful must be promoted,
which is what I am doing now. And the list must be protected from
spam and people who would love to destroy the list. That is why any
good list must be moderated.
This would however be an amateur list, though professionals would be
This is just a feeler, I have not started such a list and will do so
only if I think there would be enough members to provide at least
five to ten posts per day.
Let me know what you think and I will go from there. Post me at:
that is (at Yahoo.com) if you think you
might be interested.
