This post was garbled with multiple insertions of the same text in
random places.

It is also confusing to me because I am unable to determine always
whether it is referring to an umbrella list as a list whose members are
other lists (the actual definition) or a list with regular_include_lists
set up as a pseudo umbrella list.

Please repost without the multiple text insertions and with
clarification as to what the intended list configuration is.

Also, when referring to wiki articles, the TinyURL (e.g.
<https://wiki.list.org/x/4030540>) is much preferred to a URL like

San Francisco Bay Area, California    better use your sense - B. Dylan
