Bob Ringwald & List mates

Thanks Bob for your hard work in getting us on a server that doesn't
keep bouncing us off. Regarding the flap about "moderators", someone
posted a message last week, that one of his answering messages to the
list was denied pending a decision by the "list moderator" as to whether
or not it was relevent. I suspect that it was another chat list where
that occurred, rather than this one because as you state, there has been
no moderator here, except in cases where folks get way over the top in
form or content.

However, once that post was made, lots of folks picked up on it and we
all got our knickers in a knot over nothing. In my own case, one of the
reason I subscribe in digest form is so I can easily follow a thread. At
my age and attention span, it saves wear and tear on the memory and the
misunderstandings that used to form in my mind when reading posts
message by message. Maybe more of us should do that. ;-)

Once again, thank you for your hard work. I for one, hope we get back to
the 600+ members we had before the old server started removing people on
its unmoderated own.
