Hello buddy.

I recommend Riseup lists. It's free and is committed to free software movement. I don't see any requirement for being an activist.

You can also disable archiving emails by contacting them, if you want the history to be private. You can also moderate who can subscribe.

Hi.  I am part of a few Google Groups mailing lists and I would like to
move further away from G$$gle.  Do you recommend an inexpensive (note
that the Brazilian Real is very undervalued against the US Dollar) and
ethical (privacy and software freedom) mailing list service?

I know about sourcehut lists, but they forbid emails containing HTML
parts; I much prefer plain text myself, but I bet many of my colleagues
and friends will refuse to use a mailing list that forbids HTML.

I know about; its privacy policy seems acceptable, and I can
perform many operations in it without proprietary JavaScript, but it has
significant downsides:

1. The gratis plan has a limit of 100 members per list, and the paid
    plans are too expensive in Brazilian reais.
2. It does not commit itself to software freedom, so at any moment it
    could start requiring proprietary JavaScript for important
    operations.  I don't want to have to frequently change mailing list
So, despite the shortcomings, do you recommend I move to (at
least for small lists that fit the gratis plan)?  Do you know a better
