New "election-methods" list

Rob Lanphier-2
I'm starting up an "election-methods-list" list to discuss single-winner
reform, the relative merits of different PR systems, and the technical
underpinnings of all election methods.  This list is intended to
compliment, not to replace, the existing "elections-reform" list.  

Please continue to discuss the various electoral reform movements in the
U.S. and throughout the world in the "elections-reform" list.  
"elections-reform" is still the best forum for discussing strategies used
in reform campaigns, specific legislation addressing reform, and
educational material about reform.

What is the difference, you ask?  "election-methods-list" discussions will
most likely be more technical in nature, with the ultimate goal of
providing recommendations and educational material to the members of
"elections-reform".  There have been complaints in the past that
discussions on "elections-reform" have been too technical, and
"election-methods-list" has been created to offload the more prolific
technical discussions to "elections-reform".  It lets folks use
"elections-reform"  to stay abreast of current activity in electoral
reform without fear of their inbox exploding.

To subscribe to "election-methods-list", send mail to [hidden email]
with no subject line (any subject will be ignored), and the following one
line in the body of your message:

subscribe election-methods-list

My apologies to anybody who stumbled on the web page that I set up a week
ago at and tried
to subscribe (and failed, because the list didn't exist yet).  In the time I
was waiting for the list to get set up, I set up the web page.  
Everything should *now* work according to the instructions on that page.

That's all there is to it.  Let me know if you have any questions about
the new list.
