I was interested in another perspective and to see how active the other
mail list was. I was also hoping to get a discussion and perspective
from those with less technical background and perhaps more experience in
publicity related issues. No disrespect intended.

I agree, this shouldn't be done haphazardly. I was trying to get a more
