I'm forwarding a message from a person who was a member of "another" web 
development list. Since he expressed some discontent there, I invited him 
to join thelist (by private email, of course).

His comments are the reason I'm forwarding this message. He says he was 
aware of Evolt.org but didn't KNOW that there was a mailing list.

This got me thinking: are we not advertising thelist enough on 
www.evolt.org? I checked the site again, and sure enough, there is no 
mention of it anywhere except an inconspicuous link labelled "Lists".

Ahem, we need to fix that, IMO.
