Agreed!  And thanks for mentioning it -- the more user input we get,  
the better!  It's a bit hard to make everything obvious on that first  
page, but I'd definitely like to see us improve the functionality for  
existing members (right now the page is clearly optimized for new  
subscribers).  Would it make more sense to have just a giant  
"existing list members click here" and a separate page that's  
targetted at existing members, or do you think we can do both things  
in one place? Saving that click can be a big deal...

Hmmm... now you've got me thinking about it again.  Perhaps some good  
will come of this. ;)
