OK, I *told* you I hadn't been able to pay close attention lately. I now realize that by "closing the lists", it was meant to close them in the sense that only subscribers can post, to avoid spam as we've all talked about. I initially thought you meant close them to no more new subscribers. Didn't think that made sense.

How about cross-group communication though? Sounds like at least the group representatives are going to have to cross-sub to all the working groups so, for instance, Marketing can tell Development what they want or Content can add some new article feature by way of the Development group, and so forth. Or maybe use theforum as the go-between list.

I definitely agree with anti-spam measures.
