Eh, I like both, so either works for me.  I wasn't actually voting for 
getting rid of the listserv, it was only a thought to toss out since we have 
already gotten 2 or 3 people talking about the mail volume. :)

I do hope that once we get the RPG website up with a message board, those of 
you who don't normally traffic message boards will at least traffic that one? 
 Especially given that you're interested in said RPG?  I'm going to try and 
have -something- up and running this weekend (I should not be saying this 
because as soon as I do, some emergency will come up).

There won't be a heck of a lot of content on it yet, but maybe I can create a 
link there to a freebie message board so we can start chatting there.  That 
will get the RPG stuff off of the list.  I apologize that it's such a bother 
to everyone.  It'll be moved soon, I promise!
