M-Pol is an unofficial discussion list hosted on Yahoo Groups, where issues of Mensa politics are discussed. It was founded by Sander Rubin, and tends to a somewhat more anti-establishment tone than the other major Mensa political list, M-Grapevine. However, some of the same people are active on both lists and sometimes cross-post their messages to both of them.
