DSX is a adult and slash Due South mailing list. It was created in the late 1990s when fans put out a call for for mailing lists with more open-minded policies. James Walkswithwind -- who had access to a private server, crucial in those days responded with the creation of two mailing lists, DIEF, for gen and PG-rated het or slash, and DSX, for adult fiction and slash. (This was a departure from the usual practice of having g- through x-rated slash on slash lists and g- through x-rated gen and het on non-slash lists.) Both lists moved first to egroups and then to yahoogroups and are still in existence, though the traffic is greatly reduced from their heyday. It had approximately 300 members at its peak. Speranza is currently the listadmin on both lists.
Description from the Due South Slash Site:
DIEF and DSX
The master lists of all due South fan fiction. These lists are open to all types of DS fiction, splitting between General audiences, DIEF and adult erotica, DSX. These are fiction-only lists, no discussion. But unlike all the other lists around these do not limit what characters or season you will see represented. Nor do they distinguish between slash and no-slash which is very progressive. They are also the oldest due South fiction lists on the net. Both are housed on onelist.com and more info can be found on the webpage of co-list administrator, Anagi.To join DSX send an age statement to co-list admin, [...] then go to DSX on Onelist and subscribe.
