Well, I disagree with you guys.  I don't understand where this negativism is
coming from.  Is that just the resistance to the change :>?

All you would really need to do is to subscribe to the new list server if
you are interested in the subject.  Not a big deal.  It would not require
any additional resources ( as far as I understand).  It would not increase
the Internet traffic either. 

If Shafat and Dennis are willing to make an effort to set it up for us,
great.  My thanks to them.  Not all of us want to sort the e-mail
automatically from the in-box.  Ones again, I support the idea.
