The AMC birthday (a/k/a pigday) list is a monthly informational
posting of birthdays of AMC fans that read rec.arts.tv.soaps and
their families. It includes birthdates, names, and email addresses.
At one point in time, many of the AMC ratsers starting sharing
personal information, including birthdays. Soon after that,
Mary Allison started posting the birthday list every month. As
more people read the list, more people asked to be added to the
list. The pigday list is currently maintained by Cathy Sands
(firstname.lastname@example.org). If you wish to have your
birthday listed, send email to the list maintainer. You may be
surprised by many pleasant good wishes on your birthday.
