the idea that the "correspondance-behind-the-mailing-list-board" is as
equally as m.portant as the actuated responses onlist.
Kathy has expressed a dislike for personal conversations that take up
valuable list space, which I understand, but what might go unacknowledged is

- conceptualises successful, open, thriving lists as opposed 2 mandating
mono-directional, closed-topic-response-based communication stylistics.
- worries ova the need 2 lock-down posts in2 stratified, rigid medi[a]ums
that must be tamed/groomed/directed along a theoretical+regulated
- is puzzled by cost-benefit analyses/approaches/stratagems in relation 2
forums that could encourage holistic, open-ended, multifarious interchanges
that blast apart notions such as "public" + "private".
