it also went to theforum without fanfare...

it did not, however, go out to thelist... there's no way i was going to
bring a vote to the general membership until the list admin had
bought into the concept of it, and would allow it...

thelist was converted to sub-only, however, before i got hold of it...
switching it back is possible, but i'd rather have a list vote....

didn't see it in the held queue... wanna forward back to me?
