Whoa! That is not and never has been the List's purpose. The list was
created as a "safe haven" (founder Perry Metzger's words) for discussion
amongst Extropians without having to pander to the differently-opinioned.

Outreach can be accomplished through many other means that we already use,
including the web site (we want to improve it's function in that role),
local meetings and chapters, appearances in the media, and so on.
