Definition of a Private Email Discussion List: Just like a PUBLIC email discussion list, except that the membership is CLOSED, and the list owner approves and controls who is on the list at all times.
Most email list services are under $49 a month for a simple email discussion list service or you can run one yourself. Bottom line is that they can be an extremely profitable way to speed & increase communication, and give you and your company an edge that your competitors most likely do not have.
You can also use this concept with PUBLIC discussion lists to solve business or personal problems, or help with educational issues, such as studying for an exam/certification that is popular - and pulling together a couple hundred or thousand other folks on Earth that are doing the same thing.
