To point out the obvious, there are a lot of mailing lists in the world other
than the IETF's.

That is false, although the cruddy software interface does not make it easy
to figure out how to subscribe.

* start at, click Member login at the top, and log in with your member credentials

* click Edit my Profile near the upper center of the window

* click the Preferences tab


* It should pop up a box in which you can check the lists you would
like to subscribe to, with the Internet Policy list at the bottom.
Check the box, also Receive Emails at the top, then Save.

You do not have to tell me that this is the worst mailing list
subscription interface on the face of the planet.  We know.
Unfortunately it is part of a larger member management system and
fixing this bit is annoyingly hard.
