Re: [Plug] PLUG Meeting Subject-Suggestion!!

I just figure it this way, it works now and it is open, we do not get alot
of spam, if any, maybee when the list gets bigger, but till then, it is
safe to keep it as is.  I get a 24000 connection at home, sure it takes a
little while, but that only happens how often?

:they did not want to become "newsgroups" with poor signal/noise ratios.

:So for those of you in the driving seat and making decisions - don't get so

:can not only post but also get the messages without having to subscribe.
