The Gen Fic Crit Mailing List was a mailing list where fans could review and discuss gen fan fiction. Both fanzine fiction and netfic were welcomed. The mailing list was publicly archived here. While the list remained open until 2009, activity declined beginning in 2005 with media fandom's migration to Livejournal and other blogging communities.

From the mailing list FAQ:

"... In the interests of fairness, stories which have been posted to private mailing lists whose archives are not open to the public, should not be discussed. These stories are not "out in the wild" and it wouldn't be fair to discuss them. However, any story which is public (published on a web page, to a public mailing list, or in a fanzine) is fair game, and free to be discussed."[1]

Period Of Activity

While the archives preserved on the wayback machine only go so far as 2007, the mailing list did continue through to 2009, when a server crash wiped all the archives and subscriber information. [2]
