To send a message to a {mailing list} or
{newsgroup}. Usually implies that the message is sent
indiscriminately to multiple users, in contrast to "mail"
which implies one or more deliberately selected individual
recipients.

You should only post a message if you think it will be of
interest to a significant proportion of the readers of the
group or list, otherwise you should use private {electronic
mail} instead. See {netiquette}.

[{Jargon File}]

(1997-12-04)

Power-On Self-Test

post: v. To send a message to a mailing list or
newsgroup. Distinguished in context from mail; one might ask, for example: “Are
you going to post the patch or mail it to known users?”

Post
(1.) A runner, or courier, for the rapid transmission of
letters, etc. (2 Chr. 30:6; Esther 3:13, 15; 8:10, 14; Job 9:25;
Jer. 51:31). Such messengers were used from very early times.
Those employed by the Hebrew kings had a military character (1
Sam. 22:17; 2 Kings 10:25, "guard," marg. "runners"). The modern
system of postal communication was first established by Louis
XI. of France in A.D. 1464.

(2.) This word sometimes also is used for lintel or threshold
(Isa. 6:4).

POST. After. When two or more alienations or descents have taken place
between an original intruder ant or defendant in a writ of entry, the writ
is said to be in the post, because it states that the tenant had not entry
unless after the ouster of the original intruder. 3 Bl. Com. 182. See Entry,
limit of.
