    While I think George?s reaction is a little extreme I do enjoy his writing 
    style. This issue of changing lists is of great concern to me and it is not a 
    modest change from where I stand. It may be time for a change but I think it 
    should be a server that Dan or the ?list? controls and not someone that can 
    change the rules or sell the membership list in the future. There is also a 
    concern about Spam.  I receive my e-mail at work on a company machine that is 
    also available to the children I work with in the boat building program. The 
    last thing I need is for some kid to repeat a phrase to his parents he saw in 
    an e-mail on my computer. It doesn?t do any good to say that the child had no 
    business using my computer. The reality is that children do what children do 
    and sometimes they do it without regard to reason. You also say this is an 
    opportunity to join a second list. Why do I want to receive a duplicate of 
    what I receive now? Doesn?t sound like a great opportunity to me.
    All the best,
    Robert Gainer
