For what it is worth, I am now subscribed to LUV2BE and BCT-Freelists
and, so far, have noticed that the majority of you are still on the
Freelist.  Slightly confusing but, I'll keep with both; make a message
rule to get them all into my BCT folder and see what happens next.

                                        Hi.  Ok, i don't really want to
seem rude when I say this 
because i don't want to seem ungreatful.  However, having 2 lists for 
this community, project, idea or whatever you'd like to call it, 
seems really silly to me.  I run a list on Freelists, and I have 
never had any problems with Freelist's tech support.
They should have more tools and facilities available to them than one 
person running a list on his own.  Plus having 2 lists just creates 
fragmentation and confusion among the list members.  Is this really 
what we want? Seems to me the answer is no.  If some moderation on 
this list is done, i mean ssome serious moderation is done, then we 
won't have the need for 2 lists.  Again, I do not want to seem 
ungreatful to Chetan for offering to set this list up again on his 
own server, but to me it's not necessary.  we haven't had nearly as 
many problems as we did before. If this keeps happening where people 
are just setting up their own lists, then what?  We really don't need 
to be spread all over everywhere folks.
Let's just appoint an actual moderator for this list who will put 
his/her foot down when necessary and we won't need all these other 
lists to be created.  Do you guys realize that for a short time BCT 
had 3 lists up and running all at once? 3! 1 here on Freelists, one 
on Chetan's server and one on Yahoo, which to this day I still don't 
understand the reasoning for.
Let's stick to this list here and appoint a moderator and just have 
done with it already!
Ok, off that fabled soap box. I've had my say.  Thanks for reading 
for whatever it might be worth.
