Thanks for all the help in tracking down mailing lists, everyone! I received
a lot of messages from people who knew about various mailing lists, and even
more messages from people who wanted to see the compiled list of lists.

However, special thanks is in order to Mark Levinson, who had already compiled
a list of mailing lists that included everyone else's suggestions and much more.
And thanks to Rebecca Phillips and Eric Ray for forwarding Mark's list to me.

So, without further ado ("ado"? -- what a strange word!), here is Mark
Levinson's list of mailing lists (very slightly modified in format and
wording here and there) for technical communicators:
