Cocoa Unbound
by Mike Ash  

My recent whining about ridiculous moderation policies on cocoa-dev has borne fruit! Brent Simmons has graciously created cocoa-unbound, a group dedicated to Cocoa discussion but without the foolishness. I've already joined, and I encourage you to do so as well. A well-trafficked mailing list where we can talk about Mac programming without minions of the Mothership getting in our way will be a wonderful resource to have.

Did you enjoy this article? I'm selling whole books full of them! Volumes II and III are now out! They're available as ePub, PDF, print, and on iBooks and Kindle. Click here for more information.


That bit of moderation was puzzling.
Count me in, I just joined cocoa-unbound :)
I just use Stack Overflow instead.
Maybe I'm a dolt, but... do you have to have a google account to join? From the page, it seems so...
From what I've been able to dig up, try e-mailing cocoa-unbound-subscribe@googlegroups.com and that may let you join without needing an account.
This is one of the main reasons we created MacTech Conference (http://www.mactech.com/conference): it's important to have a Mac-related conference that isn't run, or censored by Apple, nor have any other attachments.

In any case - just signed up to Cocoa-unbound.
The following message to <cocoa-unbound-subscribe@googlegroups.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-"5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.......
