I'm really surprised that empyre doesn't cut with this server -- 
although I konw that the COFA sysadmin people are quite nice, it 
seems that the mailing list software is incredibly problematic for 
running this list.  It has been confusing so many times with the 
frequency of the moderators re-posting someone else's posts, bounces, 
and other strange gymnastics -- why don't we roll this over to a more 
stable and friendly situation -- like the Thing, or somewhere else 
that at least runs friendly list servers...

It's like being constantly prodded by the invisible admin as to how 
we have chosen to communicate...

I would offer my own server for this if there was a serious 
consideration to migrate -- I host five or six lists and don't have 
anything like the trouble that seems to plague empyre...
