Agree re splitting.

Lets be fair. It might be a huge success. Right now it's only starting.

I think there is a risk, which is borne out by the split in comments, about how the success should be measured. The people that seem quite friendly towards the idea seem to be those that use the Yahoo website to read the list. And to be fair, if that's how I did it, I would have given up years ago. I don't know if Yahoo gives out information on hist to group owners. It might.
What Yahoo's not likely to count in website kits is the number of happy lurkers who read and digest the emails, but don't often have much to say about what they've read. And the people who get the group as emails, already filtered off into appropriate silos by their email software seem to be the ones saying 'what's the point'. Knowing that 50 people a day come to MoonDesign while only 30 people come to Yahoo could give the impression that Yahoo is dead in the water, while neglecting to count the 500 who don't currently need to leave a footprint.
