Re: New home for list needed.
I disagree - my experience with lists, and I'm several has been that
text based lists using email are more cogent and offer more information
that is relevant. Web based lists open to anyone - even if for a brief
moment tend to carry a lot more false information and hearsay that is
irrelevant and often untrue. Of course the same could be said about
email lists, but at least with alt-photo and several other reservists I
subscribe to, regular contributors tend to reign in the BS in short order.

of the alt subscribers are on that list too :-)
Following Loris suggestion: I also think it is time to leave the pure text
email behind us, bandwith should, for the majority, no longer be an issues
to not receive rich content. Including images etc could be very benificial
And yes there is a fluidity to email based system that a forum/group
website does not offer, mails just arrive in my inbox and for a lazy bum
like me I would not read much of the stuff on a website/forum.
Yup, i'm a leecher/lurker on this list, i'm not a practitioner of alt,
only interested, maybe some day in the future......
