Really? As a mail server admin, I'd have to say you are wrong. Worst case scenario they could cut and paste a message into a message for each group.
You really don't get it. Many people will not use the forums. those of us that will now lack their insight.
It is a loss to all of us.
Well, as a server admin, why don't you start up your own server and take over where Sailnet left off? Then you can have it your own way, not have to deal with moderating or advertising (that actually make free sites free) and run it as you see fit. Given your post, you obviously are an expert at the matter and doing so would be a snap of your fingers. You guys crack me up.
And sorry, all you have to do is type sailnet.com or put it in your favorites and it pops up and can remember you. It isn't hard, really. I promise. I am not an admin server guru expert and do it every day.
We moderate the spam out of here. We keep the porn out. We try to maintain civility. And since I have been coming to this site I have never once been bothered by ads and do not mind them. They are either in the top or sides and not in the middle of the forum where the information is.
It is down. It is over. The lists are closed. You have about three options at this point:
1) Participate here and roll with the changes. We welcome you,
2) Forget this site and others and make your own course,
3) Start up your OWN list server and take over where Sailnet left off.
Complaining about it here is not an options anymore. This has been beaten to death. It is over. THis thread is closed.
PS I get on sailnet on my blackberry and have done so countless times.
