Re: Important: Direction

I fully agree with the below post, for what it's worth. They're a bit more formal, windows tech support questions will probably be squashed, but then those are off-topic anyway. They do joke, so they're not off-topic nazi's.

Hi Elf.

As far as I can tell, and I've been on both lists for a number of years
the guys on that list are very much like the guys on this list.

As has been said the tone is a little different, seems more focused on
programming, less general enquiries but jokes have been posted before
and weren't squashed, web development questions and the like have been
asked and answered and there are some very knowledgeable and experienced
people on that list.

What does worry me a little is that no information has been posted on
program-l about this merge.

As said in a previous post, I don't really mind either way, but I don't
see it as losing a community. The community will still be there, just in
a different place and with some more members.

Just my thoughts.
Nick.

I was on that list for a very short period of time, I left it!

I found the individuals there at that time to be cold hearted with a
cold attitude

        I mean, what is the difference between the two lists that is
putting so much anxiety out there?

        and I tell you this, I don't think the programming l list has

them with those other folks, and I'm gone, totally and completely no
grab bag no referrals, no damn nothing,

                Combining these lists is a wonderful idea.

                Well, honestly, I currently actually belong to both
lists, and, yes, I do sometimes cross-post if sharing information.

                

                Stay well

                        Hello Everyone,

                        

                        A couple of people have expressed concern about
merging the two lists. I will review input from all list members sent
from now until next Monday.

                        

                        Send your feedback now and I will give everyone
an update next Tuesday morning.

                        

                        Jeff Bishop
