You can use any email account to subscribe to google groups.  it works just like any other list management software.  I use it, but not for my listserv's

and i'm jeremy, not jerry, as for stability, who knows in this academic environment, but we did just publish our 10th anniversary book in our 12th year of operation, so... However, that said, everything could change tomorrow.  

as for cda, well I used to run the lnc list, until it basically devolved into one person shouting at anyone else that would answer their trolls.  I took that over from Phil Graham, now it is basically the website  which i host.
