Eva Thury advises her students to treat techwr-l as an
alien planet: "tread carefully, and remember that the grass
may be carnivorous!" Eva, if your classes are half so
interesting as your metaphors, you've got a lucky batch of
students indeed! Still chuckling over that one... but it
does raise the interesting point that monitoring the list,
even without posting, provides the students with an
excellent real-world example of audience analysis.

Another suggestion: to those posters who are intimidated by
the occasionally hostile tone of the list, follow the
dialogue long enough to identify someone who shares your
point of view and who doesn't bite (much)... and send the
question to them instead of the list.
