Chuck is right--this list is bi-directionally reflected in

I don't think I would agree with having multiple
technical communication newsgroups simply because of the
convenience of having everything together. We are averaging
10 messages/day and have 360 subscribers (plus all of the
USENET community), and I doubt that our current volume
reflects enough demand to put much traffic on several
parallel newsgroups.

BTW, this list was formed for precisely the reasons Greg outlined.
Why would we do it again? This isn't necessarily a rhetorical question--
if anyone thinks we should have multiple newsgroups or different groups,
I would be interested in hearing about it.

A FAQ is not a bad idea. If anyone is interested in putting
one together, contact me. I don't have any idea how it might be distributed
other than posting to news.answers, but I can check on it.
