The TolkLang web site hosts a mirror of the
Elfling list and of the Lambengolmor
list, which are mailing
lists on Tolkienian linguistics, mainly distributed via the commercial
service Yahoo! Groups
Disclaimer: The mirrors are provided as a service to the
members of TolkLang and the other lists; the TolkLang administration has no
responsibility whatsoever for the contents of the mirrors, and
makes no promises about the completeness or availability of the
mirrors. All questions about Elfling and Lambengolmor should be
addressed to their respective owners, firstname.lastname@example.org
The main purpose of holding the mirrors is so that they can be
searched along with the TolkLang list. If you wish to browse the lists,
it may be easier to do so via the Yahoo site. However, the mirrors
are available: elfling and lambengolmor.
Please note the following points:
- The copies of messages in this mirror are not identical
to those available through the Yahoo service, although there
should be no difference in the main text. Yahoo adds numerous message
headers to the messages it distributes, which are not present in the mirror.
Yahoo also inserts `[elfling|lambengolmor]' at the
beginning of the Subject: header; this is not present in the mirror.
- For the convenience of Yahoo users, I try to ensure that
the numbers used in this mirror match those used by Yahoo when
it places messages on its Web site. Because of this, messages do not
appear here until after they have successfully appeared on Yahoo
and the assigned message numbers can be determined, which I aim to do daily.
- As an anti-spam measure, all messages available on the Yahoo
Web site have email addresses mangled. The same mangling is applied to
the messages held here. Thus a search for a known email address will
not succeed, unless you first mangle it.
