I think that a moderated list discussing technical communication
issues would be a great thing. I don't think that TECHWR-L
is the place for it. My occasional bitching and moaning
notwithstanding, I REALLY like this list and you people.
I'd hate to see TECHWR-L change other than through the current
course of evolution.

If some organization wants to sponsor a second (moderated)
list, that would be great. I'd probably even throw in an
application to be the moderator. My two cents: A moderator
for such a list would HAVE to be paid. Volunteers don't have
the time it takes to do it right, nor can they (rightly)
prioritize the list over real responsibilities consistently
enough to keep it dynamic. (To forestall the
question, nobody pays me to do this.)
