Re: message board on the website?

FWIW, I used to run the CD-R discussion list for Adaptec and later
Roxio, a=
nd we went through a very similar debate since the
participants covered a w=
ide range of experience and technicality.
Eventually we all agreed to keep =
a single list, and people could pick
and choose what to read. Many original=
ly "ignorant" users explicitly
said that they were learning a lot and liked=
it that way. For those
who found the volume of mail overwhelming (reading =
it on a website was
not an option back then), I eventually launched weekly =
newsletters
with articles often inspired by hot topics in the discussion gr=
oup.

if we feel we need to…we can split it up into a developer/user list.
