[Herb-students] What's an herb-student mailing list?

Perhaps I should take a moment and explain how a mailing list works.
We have something like 120 people who will receive this note and any
other note sent to the herb-students list. This mailing list will work
something like an open night mike in a large auditorium. Anybody who
would like to do so, can stand behind the mike and speak. I recently
chose to speak a bit about thick and thin herbs.
After that point, others can chime in with additional questions or
remarks regarding the topic that I have begun. Or, if you chose, you
can begin a new topic, though of course keeping the topics centered on
learning Chinese herbal medicine would be a good idea. We can deviate
from this narrow topic as the need arises, but we'll want to stay on
topic as is most possible.
I am the so-called "list-master" which means I'm responsible for the
content of the list. So, it is my job to keep the conversation rolling
as well as reign it in if it gets too far off topic. If anybody is mean
to anybody else I get to handle that issue as well, but that is rare, so
just treat people with respect as you would have them treat you and
we'll all get along just fine.
I am the instructor for Introduction to Herbology at Emperor's College
of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California, USA and
have begun this list in hopes of helping other students find ways to
learn herbs better than just sitting down with a book and cramming it
into your brain to pass an exam.
I myself spend a certain portion of the day studying herbs just to
understand these medicinals better, perhaps we can all do this together?
I'll contribute whenever possible, but you can as well.
Welcome to this list.
