FWIW I never accused you guys of being elitist, but because it was a 
"selection" process, that's why I sort of tongue-and-cheek used the 
term.  I didn't realize it was a sore spot, honestly.

also.  I was on Monkeyjunkies and missed the entire Dan vs. Taylor 
episode (it was a pretty high traffic list and I was pretty busy) and 
missed the whole thing.   Joined evolt as soon as I knew about it.

My daughter is going to turn 13 w/in days of evolt.org turning 10, btw. 
  So she was just turning 3 when evolt began.

Which war would that be?  are we still having a war?  It never seemed 
like a war to me, even back then (let's say, April 2002), but man, some 
really felt that way. It was hard to have voice an opinion without 
someone taking offense or feeling threatened.

FWIW I think it was a *very* smart move to open up the admin process, 
and lists.
