Personally, I'd be much more comfortable if this mailing list were impressed on clay tablets, baked, and delivered quarterly by ox cart. On the other hand, BBS forums have the huge advantage of being able to segregate everything into specific categories and topics. In truth, as I'm sure I said once several years ago, I'd MUCH rather this were a BBS forum than this stone-age mailing list format. But alas, there are always those who, like Mark Twain, are in favor of progress but uncomfortable with change. --gary
