Mailing list archives? Questions...

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for asking... I think you should have a single archive with
the Email addresses erased. If I find an old message, and want to
converse with that person, I can ask on the list for contact
information. If he (or she :) isn't on list anymore, they probably
aren't involved with good computers anymore...

Just my opinion... With that and 2 cents you can buy a '286 PC...
