A primitive mailing list, invitation only – the solution to online trolls

I’m enjoying a ‘mailing list’ that I’m ‘subscribed’ to – the updates from my family members, my dad and my aunt writing little blogs now and then and sending them to everyone. It’s just a plain old email with a bunch of recipients. That’s a good way to make a forum, unofficially, like a discussion forum online. Everyone in this group email knows each other. You aren’t getting trolls and spam.

I need to do this deliberately and talk about some topic that is important to me – real people only, verified by people I know, who aren’t going out and giving the email address to random strangers and letting new trolls in.
