Yeah I aggree, I think **more** mailing lists is probably a bad thing, keep
it simple :-) Maybe when the "congregation" gets really big there'll be a
need for regional lists and meets, but at the moment do we really need them?

cheers

Subject: Proliferation of Mailing Lists

Can I put my hand up for *NOT* having any more mailing lists, at least not
yet.
Let's work out if we're getting maximum use out of the ones we have before
we go mailing list crazy.

I can see Lee's reasoning about having lists for the regions but I would
urge
against that as that'll mean having to monitor all the regional lists just
in
case there is something going on somewhere where someone might be on
business.
Much easier to use [TAGS] in the subject lines. Less chance of things
occuring
in isolation that way too.

Just my 0.2c.

Neil.
