Here is an idea to maybe settle everyone down about the French/British group thing. Lets face it, half the stuff on the CR list is marginal bantering (some of which is done myself too). If the French/British web site is being updated with content - honest to goodness stuff of merit (otherwise why do it) - than why not just put the CR group on as a member and then everyone can tune in to the updates if they wish? It sounds like there might be a message or two at most per day - but maybe even only a message or two a week - the CR list can handle that. As a consequence, CR folks only need be on one list. Plus - since the new group is not a discussion group, useful discussion may arrise on the CR group that wouldn't otherwise occur. Best of both worlds?
