"Is not the problem JLS wishes to identify better compared to Russell's  
paradox re classes:  Is the class whose members are all those members that  
are 'not members of that class' a member of that class (or not)?"  

No. I think this addresses a *different* problem (or issue) that I rather  
entitle, as per subject-line, "Grice's Class".
The reference is to A. G. N. in his "Apologia pro philosophia mea" (in  S. 
Shanker, ed, "Philosophy in Britain Today", p. 78), as Flew recollects  J. 
L. Austin's "Saturday Mornings": 
"described once 
by Paul Grice as 
"the class for all those 
whose classes have no members" 
"(See Warnock, "Saturday mornings", in I. Berlin et al, 
"Essays on J.  L. Austin" (Clarendon, 1973)".
