SCI now uses Google Groups for its email, and has consolidated all its email lists into one for the time being. A Google account is not needed to send or receive emails to the list. To send a message out to the membership, simply send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The email list is a moderated list, so your email won’t be sent out instantly. As a reminder, this remains a voluntary email list and you may unsubscribe anytime via the option at the bottom of any email sent on this list. You may also send an email to email@example.com and simply request to be removed. For the time being, this will be the only SCI email list, so we strongly recommend remaining subscribed. We will be creating an additional email list in the near future that contains all members and is synonymous with membership.
SCI has made available an RSS feed for viewing messages posted to all three of SCI’s mailing lists. To subscribe to the RSS feeds, point your reader to the following addresses:

Participants are prohibited from posting defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal material on SCIMEMBERS.

Although SCIMEMBERS is a moderated forum, participants are solely responsible for their postings, and participants should be aware that all posts to SCIMEMBERS are not retractable. Additionally, all posts will be publicly viewable and are not confidential.
Due to the anti-spam configurations on our server, all emails including replies sent to SCIMEMBERS must be signed with a name and an email address.
