Perhaps we used too many words, arguments and explanations, that the point drifted off. Members like Trotsky, me and other people giving points to the list - of course - are those who know how to work with a list. We do feel sorry for those who indeed use the yahoo website and don't know how to set up their mailclient. But this should not be a reason to move to another technic that has without doubt its strengthes, but those lie elsewhere.
To sum up in only few lines: What we want to say is, it is simply too
arduous to follow a forum, if you know better. I want to use the best
available tools that exist to handle news. Now they tell me I must
scroll through - well, scrolls.
-- few lines end
A sad and sorry - I mean it! - Good Bye to those who leave the list, their wisdom will be missed. It may be it's death, but pessimism alone will not let me go to a forum.
PS: I will not contribute more on this subject here. But I am willing to
collaborate on keeping this list attractive / find better ways. Mail me
Perhaps we only lacked to have a "how-to" on handling a mailing list in a mail client" :-(
