the still point
current issue
mailing list
Since the Y2K-inspired demise of the GEnie computer bulletin board service at the end of 1999, Don Keller's topic there has existed as a mailing list:

From Don's initial welcome message:

The primary purpose of this list is in-depth discussion of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, most particularly the mythological analysis I have been occupied with for some time.

But I don't promise to limit myself, and music discussion (indie rock and 20th century classical especially) is likely to crop up from time to time. My plan is to code my subject lines (b/ for Buffy messages, m/ to designate music, or movies, or "more," other codes as deemed necessary) so that those who are primarily interested in the Buffy discussion can follow that thread.

To join the list, send a message to with the words "subscribe stillpt" (or, for the Digest version, "subscribe stillpt-digest") in the message body. You will receive a confirmation e-mail.  Once you click "reply" and return your response, you will be added to the list and receive a welcome message.

Please be sure to subscribe from the exact address from which you plan to post.  Otherwise, all your posts will be bounced to the listowner (Meredith Tarr) for approval.

If you have not been specifically invited to join by a list member, it is highly recommended that you peruse the list archive prior to joining.
