This article is from the Bob Dylan FAQ, by Adam K. Powers and John Howells email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Welcome! This Usenet newsgroup is devoted to the discussion of Bob
Dylan, his music, and things Dylan-related. We welcome your
constructive comments on nearly any issue, even if it's only
tangentially associated with Bob Dylan.
There is no official Dylan fan club, so small packs of Dylan fans
band together to stay informed and carry on general discussion. This
particular Usenet newsgroup was founded July 31, 1989 by Tom Buckley.
Sometimes it seems that all we're interested in are upcoming tour
dates and clarification of fact regarding old recordings, but there
is often very interesting discussion of Dylan's lyrics themselves, a
reason that no doubt many of you read this newsgroup. If you don't
see the sort of discussion you want, you're encouraged to bring it up

your liking is to encourage postings you like and to contribute
