The Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman Discussion Listserv (LOISCLA) was founded in February 1994 by LJC. The list had at one point over 1000 members, and on the Monday after first-run episodes aired, digests were printed out and distributed to the cast and crew of the series while the series was in production. List members were referred to as FoLCs (Fans of Lois & Clark), and the list spawned annual fan gatherings in Los Angeles known as "FolCFests". The first FoLCFest in 1995 involved a tour of the Warner Bros. studios by 70 LOISCLA members from around the world, and included a trip to the Daily Planet standing set to meet cast and production staff including Dean Cain, Teri Hatcher, K Callan, Eddie Jones, Justin Whalin, and producers Robert Singer, Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming, and writer Chris Rupenthal. It was followed by dinner at the Bombay Bicycle Club with guest K Callan.

The listserv was hosted on Trearn, a university VMS server located in Turkey, and as a result, experienced frequent downtime. LJC turned over sole ownership of LOISCLA to Zoomway in December 1995. The list moved to Onelist on May 24, 1999, where it changed its name to LoisandClarkNAOS.
