=> The only problem I see with adding a newsgroup is people who will use either
=> the newsgroup or the mailing list, but not both. Then we get discussions only
=> on one side, or replies that only some people see.
=> If we moved to a newsgroup instead of a mailing list, that might make sense..
=> although I can't logon to my ISP's news server when I logon to a different isp
=> (which happens a lot actually), whereas I can get my email from anywhere.
Unless, of course, the list/group is set up right so one is an access point
for the other. Sorta like how messages posted to comp.os.vms go to the
Info-VAX mailing list, and vice versa. Some groups have had problems with
spam using this setup (like Innosoft's PMDF mailing list/group), but it
wouldn't be a problem here as long as use of a moderator is continued.
Now, to be a really cool list, it would also need a web interface. Sorta
like the current list archives, but with post capabilities.
