META: Dwindling List Membership

In the last 8 days, the ExI list has lost about 5% of its membership. On 5/31/99, the list had 363 subscribers. Today that number is down to 346. For those who hope that maybe these losses were simply transfers from the list to the digest, the digest membership has only increased by 3 during that period of time.

Let us continue to receive 200+ posts a day, 80% of which are noise or unrelated posts about guns, taxes, abortion, navel lint, and any other topic which generates discussion quality only found in bars and pubs.

In all this mania of late, I am wondering where the list owners are? Where are Max and other ExI representatives to assist in enforcing the list guidelines? I realize everyone is busy but this list is going downhill fast.
