There's an open archive and anyone can read back. I don't insist
anyone do that, but when I join a list (which I do often enough), I do
try to develop a sense of where it's been and how it works.
This has been a useful and productive list. For newbies to sign on
and characterize it as a disappointment is OK, will happen, but I'm
not about to rush in and agree with them. I also find such an
attitude arrogant, like when "experts" come to help a developing
country without taking the time to learn anything about it first.
There's like a 300 page PhD thesis using this list as raw material,
also fascinating, a PDF linked from the edu-sig home page. I hope
everyone here has at least looked at the edu-sig home page. Just
seems a basic courtesy to do some homework before sounding off and
acting foolish, the way Tobis does.
