The original social media
In the days of the fledgeling Internet and long before the advent of social media, membership of email subscription lists was one of the best ways to build community, discuss the goings-on at Everton and stay in touch with fellow Blues.
Discussion occurred over email that was sent to a central provder and then distributed to all subscribers of the list.
ToffeeNet is the longest-running and only surviving email discussion list for Evertonians, enduring in various disguises from 1993
to the present day.
The list in its current incarnation was resurrected in May 2001 by Lyndon Lloyd when he changed the name of the Bluenose list (originally started after the demise of the original incarnation of ToffeeNet).
It is, as far as we know, the last mailing list of its kind on the Internet for the 300-ish Everton fans who want
to discuss matters Blue in a closed environment via email subscription.
The Evertonia list was
the major alternative to the straight-laced pomposity that was ToffeeNet Mk I and the more subdued present-day ToffeeNet.
The list was itself spun off from ISFA by the "list-meister",
Lol Scragg, but Everton content was limited and became really just an Internet extension of the community drinking and revelry
that used to fill The Netley public house, County Road, Liverpool 4 each match day.
ToffeeNet is run along a set of friendly guidelines that exist to maintain a forum for discussion and debate. Quick Subscribe: - join ToffeeNet today.
