RE: Important: Changes coming, please read

Well, you've lost Ken already, which means you've essentially lost me too.

 

I, in addition to others, view this has rather abrupt, and honestly unnecessary.

 

I'll hang around for a few more to see what happens.

 

 

Take care,

Sina

Yes, our plan is to move all users over and I will be giving much time for the 
transition. Don't worry, we will take this slow.

Sounds like it could get complicated.

 

Some suggestions:

 

I hope this will happen without requiring folks to unsubscribe/subscribe 
between lists, as that is an excellent way of A. losing
members, and B. simply frustrating folks who have mail rules setup, only check 
the lists periodically, etc. etc.

 

I would also recommend a minimum of one month's time before this move is made 
at all, so as to allow folks who are on digest to have
a fair opportunity to get this news.

 

I'd post this news on the webpage of the list as well, and go ahead and start 
redirecting new subscribers to the program list so
that you can have an effective cut off point.

 

Take care,

Sina

Hello Everyone,

A great suggestion was made by Jamal Mazrui and after consultation with George 
Bell and others we will be moving the
ProgrammingBlind list into Program-L, thus only having one programming list for 
the blind.

 

This will take place in the next couple of weeks and I will keep everyone 
up-to-date on what steps will be taking place after
consulting with FreeLists management.

 

If you have any questions please let me know.

 

A very sincere thanks goes out to Jamal and George Bell, you guys are the best!

 

Jeff Bishop
