Re: SEUL: Observatons

I agree that a newsgroup is not appropriate for development of SEUL;
mailing list(s) work well.

Also, a newsgroup might hinder participation.  I've heard that there are
some robots out there that strip names and e-mail addresses from headers
of those participating in newsgroups (w/o regard to subject matter) and
then "give" the names and addresses to various junk e-mailers.  [I hope
that this is an urban legend, but until it is cleared up to my
satisfaction, I am staying away from writing to newsgroups.]
