The Audities mailing list is for the discussion of "insanely great
pop". Inspired by the late music journal Audities, the list is run 
independently of any magazine, record label, reseller, musical artist
or group or other industry entities. Audities is an open list, and 
anything related to pop, power pop, melodic alternative, country
inspired pop or pop-punk is welcome, although posters are expected 
to keep their writings about the music. List operation began in 
September 1996 and current membership numbers 660.

Audities is an unmoderated mailing list. Incoming mail is immediately
resent to per-message list members. Digest members get a collection of
all posts since the previous digest, averaging 2 digests of 20 posts
each per day. Only list members may post; others are returned to sender.
New subscriptions are moderated briefly to block spammers and bots.

* Only subscribers to the Smoe.ORG Audities-List may post. Audities
  @ Yahoo Groups is archive-only.

* New subscribers are moderated for the first few days mainly to block
  spammers and auto-subscribe bots. 

* It is always good to read several days worth of posts before jumping
  in. Once you do, be respectful of others, avoid the flame, be
  thoughtful, tactful, witty, friendly -- whatever you are best at.
  Don't overpost.

* DO NOT make personal attacks. List termination will result.

* Bands and artists, labels, industry people & hardcore fans should
  AVOID repeated postings of promotional messages. Audities members are
  wary of being oversold, regardless of your intentions. Make sure to
  provide links to music samples, website URLs, MySpace, etc.

* DO NOT repost discussions from other mailing-lists or private mail
  without first getting the permission of the writers. Exceptions would
  be release announcements, touring schedules and the like. Complete 
  magazine articles should be not be posted, due to copyright and 
  length. Refer to URL links if possible, or use short exerpts.

* DO NOT post virus warnings, spam, or attachments. The mailing-list
  server filters out attachments and html, so you will only receive
  PLAIN TEXT messages from the Audities posts via If you do
  receive an Audities post with any attachment contact the list
  administrator <>.

* DIGEST posters: when replying please use appropiate Subject headers
  - ideally the same as the original post (with Re:) to allow readers
  readers to follow threads. AVOID "Re: Digest audities.v001.n18xx".

* NO long signatures please.
