thechat -- The social mailing list


About thechat
English (USA)

The social mailing list - useful for discussion about how to tell whether someone's a witch (hint, if she weighs the same as a duck...), weather, what hockey's about, cat photos, evolt get-togethers etc etc etc.

Basically, if it's about web development, code and so on,
it belongs on thelist. If not, it's here. What's ontopic there is offtopic
here & vice versa. If in doubt, ask on thelist, or risk responses along the lines of 'Hey, we're trying to relax here!'

Clear (as mud)?
