I fully agree.
On the other hand, I would be a pity if the Journal were read only by the
5-15 people who actually care to ask for it explicitly.
Would it be an idea to subscribe all List members automatically? Perhaps
the List Owner could help here...
Besides, I don't think there would be anything against it if we subscribe
some people who are not on the list. People have to get acquainted with it
somehow, if not through the list then through other ways. BTW wouldn't that
be a nice promotion of the list?
