Seems like the ILUG was unofficially branching in that direction anyhow.
BOF's in different disciplines are being organised for the AGM. You can bet
its only a matter of time before somebody on the admin would decide to set
up different lists to address those areas as the list grew. The main
reason some of the threads are getting out of hand is because they aren't
being moderated fully. However no one person can moderate fully a list with
a potential 600 contributors and actually do their job at the same time.
The bvious answer to his is to split the list. I don't see why you might
have a problem with this. I think its a good idea. Kate is concerned
about the number of unsubscriptions in the past while because some of the
techie people took off as the content quality dropped. Isn't this a good
way go get that back by giving them a dedicated forum? Think about it
more... it makes sense.
