Now that I'm reminded of "the early days"...

We discussed this when we set up the list orginally. There was talk about a voting scheme whereby people would mark postings as on-topic, off-topic, good or bad. Posters would gain ratings. Readers would filter based on attributes.

We kept hearing about List software being developed and refined. There was a massive programming project to develop this, as far as I remember. Now I see we are running off-the-shelf software (MajorDomo).

Whatever happened to the original List Software project?
