I think that the lack of representative participation in the listserver is
not at all really related to others being intimidated by electronic
communication; the underlying hesistation is probably more due to most
individuals not having personal, professional, or SEAOC committee contact
over which to build a background of knowledge both of the individual and
opinions about the individual from others.  That is something basic about
professional and business relationships which email does not fully meet.
