    Wrong answer!   There are list operators who wonder why their list
    hobbles along in an emaciated state on the edge of  drying out completely
    despite continued efforts to spark it to life.
    There are other list owners who put next to no effort in, but whose lists
      prosper and blossom.
    Apart from obvious features like the mass appeal of a topic (just how many off
    shore sailors are there who will not sit pat for a reading from 1,2,or 3 gps,
    but insist on practicing a difficult procedure, after all?) one factor that
    can be oil
    in the cogs, is the reduction of stray responses.
    Not all list readers register the source of the posts, or the destination
    of their
      responses - so a deathly silence is demotivating to them, and robs a list of
    some vitality....
