    George, not to worry, there's no alternate  universe here. We're not having
    lots of fascinating conversations about  navigation without you! It's an
    EXPERIMENTAL list. Remember when I described it  that way in the very first e-mail
    about it?? At that time, Navigation-L was  crashed, dead as a doornail,
    completely unable to distribute messages, so it  seemed like a good idea to
    experiment, at the very least.
    I and the  others who have been experimenting with NavList on google have
    intentionally  been trying (in my case at least) to keep posts rather trivial on
    that list in  order to avoid a de facto schism. I (and I'm sure the other
    folks, too) have no  desire to create another community. This isn't about busting
    up a list. It's  simply the technical matter of trying a new server
    arrangement. In case you're  curious, so far everything works beautifully. We've even
    got message numbers in  the subject line (a feature you mentioned as desirable).
    I'm trying to get us up  to 100 so that it's a fair experiment.
    Navigation-L, as presently hosted  on webkahuna fails to deliver 1 or 2% of
    messages. That's not very good. On  April 19, you sent a message to this list
    that begins, "Just in case it's of  interest, here's what Eva Taylor has to say
    about David Thomson" etc. I received  it in my e-mail, but this message never
    made it to the list archives on  i-DEADLINK-com. Who knows how many other
    recipients didn't get it... Doesn't it bother  you that your messages are failing to
    distribute completely?
    It is time for me to say this: your continuing comments  about my "character"
    are inappropriate, to say the least, on this list or  anywhere --and you know
    that. You KNOW that.
