Andrea Vine posted a reference to the English Dialect Information Exchange,
evidently quoted from their welcome message:

Contributions and subscriptions are welcomed from people of an academic
background in Linguistics, dialect societies and individuals with an
interest in dialectology. If you want to send a message to the forum,
send it to:

If you want to subscribe, do not write to the forum, but to:

I followed the directions precisely and got an error message. I am cc-ing this
note to the listserver's problem address.
