    could then set the group to be read by members only.
    I suspect your analysis of the "final price" for the fix finder is
    correct.  Instead of making up another "google group" [even if just
    temporarily] the interested people could just take it off Navlist and
    use email.  Each interested person could easily add the email addresses
    of those interested to a "list" in their email address book.  This would
    require some address book "maintenance" by those interested and some
    familiarity with how address books work.  Then if we were really
    paranoid we could all set up PGP on our email client software and
    encrypt our email traffic.  Then only the really really good
    cryptanalysts with lots of computing power would be able to read the
    emails regarding the item discussed.  By the time "they" cracked our
    emails the auction would be over.  If you are interested in PGP email
    encryption let me know, unless you use AOL email software in which case
    I doubt I can get PGP to work.
