Subject: PODS Alumni lists
Date: Wed, 26 Jan 2000 14:21:20 -0800


I'm forwarding this from another list because I first met
several of the people subscribed to thelema93 on PodsNet
and NuitNet.  To the list moderator from the other list
who is subscribed here - I received permission from HRM
to cross post it.

Regards, Charla


For those who were involved in the old PODS Network


The following is a list of available mailing lists affiliated with the now
defunct PODS network.  They appear in no particular order except as I have
received them.  To have your list added, please send me the list name,
moderator name, which list server it can be found on, and the list
description as it appears on that server.

Lapidar-Pods:  Moderated by Arwen Nightstar.  Found on ONElist.
This list will be a recreation of the Lapidar echo in the now-defunct

encourage you to share and to ask questions! This list is open to those
13 and up so I will ask that everyone remember that. Flaming will not be
tolerated and chain mailers will be stoned! Rock on, y'all!

PODS_God:  Moderated by Buckmeister.  Found on ONElist
The reason for this list is to explore the male mysteries.
There is so much to explore and learn from that only the
experience of many can enhance your own in finding the right
path for yourself. I have moderated this back in the days of
PODS and the BBS systems, the exchange of information and the
modifying of self happens to become a great asset to your own self
and to the Pagan community as a whole. The list is gender biased,
to which only the males can join. Please tell me about yourself a
little bit and join in on exploring the male mysteries. No gender bashing
is allowed within the list!

PODSGoddess:  Moderated by Belinda Schulz.  Found on ONElist.
This is a list created for all former PODS members that posted to the

fellow females. Discussion is open however flaming and other such nonsense
can be cause for removal from the list.

MerryMeatII:  Moderated by Wolfmoon.  Found on ONElist
Definitely not for children -- MerryMeatII is the continuation of the
PODSNet echo "Merry_Meat;" as such, the moderator(s) takes no resposibility
