Zebra Three was the first Starsky & Hutch mailing list.

The original focus of the mailing list was as an adult discussion list for Starsky & Hutch fandom. Some fans took this to mean gen, but slash discussion was allowed.

In June 1996, the mailing list moved off the university server to JBX. At some point later, both Zebra Three and VenicePlace were moved to the Squidge.org server.

A 2000 Comment Pertaining to Content

A comment by Flamingo at The Pits, a Starsky & Hutch mailing list:

At least 4 other people have said repeatedly that Z3 is a gen-only list. It is *not*. Z3 was the first SH list on the internet, and it's listmom (who is still its list mom) established it to be an adult list for open discussion of any topic. Slash is a perfectly acceptable topic on Z3 and flaming is not allowed. I have had several slash discussions on Z3 and just because some of the people there don't like it, doesn't mean it isn't an appropriate topic for the list. I can't *stand* all the damned car talk on it, but I don't flame people over it, I just delete the posts. Only the list mom can dictate the topics for her list and Robin has said many times it is an adult list for all topics, and that people need to respect that. If you hadn't posted that url on that list, I would've never seen it!

I'm glad you did. It gave me an opportunity to post a message to those people who might be on Z3 and wanted more info and several people wrote me privately begging me for more info. You did a good thing. If that woman doesn't like it, that is HER problem. Don't make it yours. You didn't do anything wrong. Post what you want on Z3, that's what it's there for. [1]
