This site is an unofficial, automatic archive of an email lottery called The Listserve.

Behind the scenes, the site is basically just a GitHub repo. The backend formats and commits posts to the repo, which gets served with GitHub Pages.

The site also provides a basic api. Just hit /YYYY/MM/DD.json, and you’ll get a json list of all posts from that day. Each post includes the raw information from the email, as well as the html-formatted version I serve. For an example, see https://thelistservearchive.com/2013/01/01.json. If you want every post, it’ll be easier to just shallow-clone the repo.
