Btw, I'd like to retroactively tone down this outburst, which was
directed at the software and the medium of email and certainly not at
the admins of this list who work hard at it, and are great at what they
do. I hope nobody took it that way.

Got this. Got this. What do you mean by this?

Hmm. A good idea, I suppose. Although in Slash clones you do get the
author's mailto: link which you can click to email them *if* the author
chooses to make their personal email address avaialble to the public.
I welcome specific suggestions, though. Even if it's just one thing the
mailing list does that the Extropy Institute slash site
(http://www.extrodot.org/) doesn't currently do. You may be surprised
by what sorts of suggestions we *could* incorporate, and just haven't
thought of or haven't realized they could be useful to somebody.
Frankly I'm surprised to see resistance to innovation on *this* list.
