A listsib is a member of a mailing list who has a close online relationship with another fan.

Many, many fans find this relationship to be positive and satisfying.

Others not so much. "And on to Loch Ness and ihe list-sister business... I know many of the people I've 'met' on lists, I like a lot of them and am very fond of one or two but I have real sisters and, ladies, I have to tell you the relationship I share with them is nothing like the relationship I share with you. Calling your pen pals 'sister' always struck me as a poor choice of words to say the least." [1]
