Mr. Sparks: "Are you, or have you ever been, a member of Extropy
Institute?" :-) I'm not concerned about persecution of ExI members, though
I agree it would be good, if practicable, to allow anonymous membership.
The point about online delivery of magazines isn't an issue -- Extropy has
already become online-only, and the newsletter is about to do the same.
I'll certainly keep your suggestion in mind. Thanks!
