Hello Jason,

Excellent question, you pinpoint a "modern" problem on the information
within the "social" network.
I don't rule if there is an official rule but the ways to cite such
reference can be two:
- Since a listserv is not "controlled" (by a board of expert), you can
cite it as name, pers. comm. (it has the same "value" as a personal
- if you want to highlight the mailing-list then you can cite name, year
and add the complete source in the list of references author's name, year,
listserv information and the exact date of the message (or the "number" of
the post)... a bit as it's done for information from a web site.

I hope it helps but the question is not resolved!

Best regards
