These lists need to be hosted externally on systems that require minimal
expertise to manage.  The major problem with the current system is that
maintaining it requires a lot of technical expertise and time.  That is
not a viable solution for PTG communications because you can't count on
finding another Richard Wells.  

For two days, there were several school district people spending a lot of
time on the blacklist problem from the PTG listserver.  While we seem to
have fixed it temporarily, this is at best a time limited solution.

There are cheap, even free solutions, so this is not a money issue in my
opinion.  It is a time a management issue.

I think the school communications should not use any PTG list, but rather
be accessible on a web site or a number of web sites, with regular email
reminders to check for new information.

The PTG list should be only for PTG communications.
