I like that idea. That would limit cross-posting.
No more steering then? Why not. A point to consider. I'm not attached to 
my steering rep title, mind you. But it sure structures things, doesn't it.

I can't, right now, say why I feel bad about the disappearance of 
steering, but I guess theforum would lack focus. At the same time 
steering is most often only used as a CC of things happening elsewhere, 
isn't it.

Damn. Two paragraphs ending with question tags. School english catching 
up on me. Should be sleeping more.
