Default listserve?

Does anyone know of a general interest gardening listserve that allows
photos to be posted along with the messages and not just in a separate file
section?

Julia -- Due to the sheer volume of messages and content that most e-mail
lists see, any e-mail list you find that allows pics to be posted will only
do so for a short period of time; eventually, they will have to stop
allowing the pics to go through due to the expense involved (not just
monetary, but also resources).

Is there something in particular you need that an e-mail list would service
better than the newsgroups? Although it's a faux pas to post pictures on
discussion groups, groups such as rec.gardens has its companion binary group
alt.binaries.pictures.gardens and most folks on one are on the other and
move between the two regularly.

I belong to an Irish Wolfhound listserv and they allow pictures to be posted
within messages and I like it sooo much. I was hoping there'd be a
gardening listserv that was similar. I don't like having to go between
newsgroups or between messages and files to look at photos--I guess I'm
spoiled s. As for why I'd prefer a listserv--I like this newsgroup for
what it is but a listserv is generally more civilized and not so much chaff
to separate from the wheat.

There's generally not this much chaff here. There's a resident
egomaniac whom it's best to ignore, but I just *had* to call him out.
My fault. It'll pass.

Yeah, the resident egomaniac is you, Julie Sloan.

Everybody has your number by now.

Flipping between groups isn't a big deal if your news client is user
friendly. For example, I use Outlook Express for reading newsgroups --
flipping between here and the binaries group is literally a single click in
the right pane. Compared to the pain of every message being a potential
file attachment, I'll take that any day.

If you keep searching, you'll likely find an e-mail list for gardening that
welcomes attachments. You might want to spend some time at Google,
pursing a few keywods.

This group's not that bad for chaff. We have a few knuckleheads that post
here from time to time, just like any other group, but most are pretty good
about their postings. The average news reader does have the ability to put
a poster on ignore status -- that way, you won't even have to deal with
him/her any longer.

I've never found it that much trouble--I have very fast cable-modem.

I did that already and had no luck, hence the question to this group.

I don't think this group is bad at all, really. I've enjoyed participating
off and on here for the last couple of years. I mostly want to be able
incorporate photos with conversation.

Post the images to your home directory of your ISP and give us the URL
to it. Then tell us what is on your mind.
