if this list dries up, it'll dry up.
It's a chicken-and-egg thing.
If there's no activity, people stop thinking about it and don't check THAT folder in their e-mail anymore, so they aren't prompted to contribute as contributions become more and more rare and... before you know it, nobody posts anymore.
Since the list gets the posts from the site, the one-per-day-or-less rate of list-mail in the past week has also been indicative of activity on the forum as well, yes?
Maybe I'm part of the problem.
Too wordy for the 140-character crowd.
GET BACK TO WORK, ME!!
PS: Thhhpppppttt! :-)
