Mailing lists are a way to provide managable, transparent, E-Mail based communications to communities of people. Some of these communities are made up of tens of thousands of people, meaning that millions of conversations take place on these lists. Mailarky exists to archive these conversations and provide a useful, searchable, forum-like interface to this mass of information.
Mailarky.com is a project set up by my boyfriend and his friend. I am posting about this here to help the little google bot find it. If you are interested then you should check it out as well. :)
