    It seems to me that it would be easy to overstate the potential problems of
    having two lists. Could be a good idea to have more than one archive.

    Where did this "religion" come from? Have you been saved, George?
    I thought the topic was nav..

    And difficult to understate the dangers of Frank's terrible character.

    Not so quickly. In practice it can take between a few minutes and a few
    hours for messages to arrive; those that get responded to and archived, thus
    not lost.

    Whether it would or not, what is actually going to happen is that the two
    lists will co-exist, at least in the short term. The sky won't fall in, and
    perhaps the worst of it will be that those easily confused will continue to
    suffer from this. In the grand scheme of things it is a very trivial matter;
    whether there are one or two or more nav lists.
