Wouldn't this be more useful if it was a message board-style forum
rather than an email-based one? The collective wisdom of participants
would be laid before newcomers, questions would only have to be asked
and answered once, and people may become inspired by things written
months before. Furthermore, you could go away and think about things,
less pressure to have to respond instantly.

Less ephemeral than an email list,

 All the best,
Gllug mailing list  -  Gllug at gllug.org.uk
