Not being able to help is not the same as not wanting the lug to 
continue!  I can certainly set up an email address which can be 
published as a contact point - I'd be fairly happy to handle the email 
too, but that does depend whether people on the list would see a problem 
with someone they'd never met (and, in fact, lives 300 miles away - for 
now) representing them.  Otherwise, I can redirect the mail (suitably 
spam-tagged!) to someone more familiar. 

If necessary, I can host the website too (on my DSL line) but I'm not so 
hot at actually maintaining them, so someone else would have to do that.

How many people are actually subscribed?
