Beth, I would not want to see the list deteriorate to just
announcements. I enjoy the give and take here. I do not have time to sit
at a computer for chats, but can check email pretty much whenever I can
take the time. Chats are great, but I would not want one to replace the
chatty nature of this list.
I would miss your posts, for example, and might not be able to do a chat one day in twenty.
