membership" and get the messages sent to your email box. This is by far
the best option; I don't know why anyone would do it otherwise. The web

slightly less easy to post messages than on an email list means that
messages tend to be better thought out and generally of higher quality
than you get on some of the email lists.

listed in your messages or the members list for this group).
