Well, what do you all think, then?.
 Personally I dont have a problem with this, but I havent looked at it in 
depth yet. I dont use a news-reader, mostly cos I could never keep up with 
the bandwidth of stuff I was interested in, rather than for any technical 
reason but those of you who do may prefer to get your Scotlug stuff via a 
news reader.
Any body got any thoughts on the security aspects of this?

There has been some discussion about moving to hosting our own mailing list 
instead of doing it through the lug.org.uk domain but no firm decisions have 
been taken.
 I manually get rid of some spam from this most days and approve/disapprove 
msgs from non-subscribed addresses but its <5 mins work per day so its no big 
deal either way.

As always, your thoughts, suggestions and offers of drink are most welcome
