About Padnet

Padnet is the "Post and Discuss Network".

The purpose of Padnet is to provide a email list for exchanging articles and discussing current events. The service is free of charge and will hopefully remain so. Although the list was started by some progressive activists based in Windsor, Ontario it currently boasts subscribers all over the world.

Subscribers are encouraged to post articles or comment on those posted by others, provided they adhere to the following rules:

-- articles should be of a national or international nature
-- no repeat posts
-- limit of three posts per person per day
-- please limit profanity
-- please do not use this list to spread jokes, petitions etc.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Wes the administrator at Please also contact Wes if you know of anyone who would like to join the list.
