At the 2011 Conference, PCRI announced the launch of the Prostate Cancer Blue Community (PCBC) a web based prostate cancer community that is overseen by the PCRI helpline. The PCBC has discussion forums about the conference and the different types of prostate cancer that we have broken down into Shades of Blue so that men can connect with other men in their same category of prostate cancer.
An Internet list is a special interest discussion group, individually managed by an Internet server known as a list server (commonly referred to as a Listserv, list processor or a list). Some lists are moderated by a list owner, while other lists are simply a free-for-all discussion without a person filtering the messages. Most lists can be provided to the user either in a digest form or on a post-by-post basis – directions for choosing this setting will usually appear in the welcome message you receive once you’ve joined the list.
Any member of a list may take part in a conversation or begin a new topic.
Many lists will have searchable archives, which are described in the welcome message.
