1.2 General newsgroup/list info
The Smashing Pumpkins Usenet newsgroup (alt.music.smash-pumpkins), and
mailing list (Listessa), used to be the main places to discuss the Smashing
Pumpkins online during the mid-late 1990s. However, Listessa is now defunct,
and usenet use has declined considerably since the popularity of web-based
message board sites took off in the late '90s and early 2000's. Currently
popular web forums may be found in the "Message Boards" links at starla.org.
Be warned that not every post/message will be about the band. Topics range from
lyrical discussions, to new song info, personal SP stories, and even more
general social interaction. Try to stay as much on-topic as possible, and if a
thread develops that you aren't interested in, ignore it - it will die out
eventually. Complaining about certain threads usually just makes matters worse
by prolonging them and generating sub-threads.
