I want to fill both lists (Freelists and Yahoo) on the status of the lists. As you know, when I re-activated the Yahoo list I did nothing to move members off of Freelists and specifically stated I wanted to keep both going at least for awhile. There appears to be just as much interest in the Freelist group as there is in the Yahoo list so it only make sense to keep them both active. I do not want to administer both lists however. So, I have talked to one of the moderators about taking ownership of one of the lists. Ron Allen has agreed to take over and administer the Freelist mailing list. I will continue to be a member of that list as a moderator (as long as he will have me) but will focus my attention to the Yahoo list. We have been in touch with Freelists and I received confirmation that they have recorded Ron as the list owner. My guess is that all of you will not notice anything different. Ron does now have complete control of the Freelist group and will decide on his own who and how many moderators he will maintain. Ron will also review the list configuration and make any changes he deems appropriate. I'm sure he will fill us in on any changes he makes that effect the list. One thing Ron and I talked about is the need to work together as "sister" lists. That means we will both be asking members of the respective lists to refrain from recruiting members to leave one list for the other. Both lists have their strengths and weaknesses. Yahoo is good for those who like the web interface, ease of navigation and don't mind giving up a little privacy. Freelists is good for those that want a pure, fast email group with no advertising strings attached in terms of added spam messages. The bottom line of all of this is that Ron and I are both in this for the same reason. That is to provide all of you with a vehicle to obtain assistance from each other with computer problems. So, just keep asking and answering questions, you'll hardly know the difference with the administrative changes.
