Sure. There are separate mailing lists meant for that on the net.
There are a number of sites for reading jokes. Jokes and forwarded
articles are normally exchanged well known friends. It need not be
mass-mailed to 1000's of rp-ml!

If u still need one from the rp-ml recipients, we should think of having
rp-humour-ml. Otherwise, rp-ml may mean rp-mockery list.

You fail to understand the logic of my posting.
A(ny) mailing list on the net has a specific purpose.
Many mailing lists have moderators to filter unwanted material.

What is the diffciculty in subscribing to some mailing lists that send u
jokes periodically?
