Re: [gpsstash] 2 listservs


First off, I really don't care which list becomes the official one
either. My point is, there should be one primary source for Geocaching
that we all agree to, and then lets stick with that.

One of the reasons I always liked eGroups was that you can read messages
1 of 3 ways... 1) Individual emails, 2) Daily Digests (less clutter in
your Inbox), 3) Via the Web (no clutter in your Inbox)... YahooGroups
offers this same feature, but registering with Yahoo seems more
convoluted and apparently a lot of people don't like Yahoo for one
reason or another, so I'm not sure how good a solution they are (I'm on
numerous eGroups lists that have all been assimilated into YahooGroups,
and many of the groups are in an uproar over the change due to some
people having strong feelings about Yahoo).

It would be nice if we do move to another list that we have it where its
accessible via the web for those that prefer not to get direct email
Personally, I prefer the direct email as I tend to forget to regularly
check websites...
