Well, look in the archives if you really wish to.

After previous stirrings and pleadings with zero response, we've now 
gone from zero to something that can now be run and work. Much thanks to 
those whom do care and have stepped in to help.

Meanwhile, those being most judgemental appear to be those most remote 
from the group in the first place.

What is clear is that there is a "maillist" group whom want a quiet 
time, and then there are likely those more local whom do meet up to do 

A few contribute even.

The nature of a group is made by the people active in that group. (Note: 
That's my opinion.)

We've had the day of rattlings to wake up with. Further salvos by direct 
mail please for anyone (still) aggrieved.

Aside: The offlist mail has been more supportive than not. And those 
commenting over on the LUGradio forum last showed their faces here at a 
meeting/social when?...
