This is just my opinion, but from what I know of both 
Dennis   (Maltedmedia) and Neil (Yahoo) both strike me as 
pretty fair people who have the best interests of the CoCo 
community at heart and will do as much as possible to 
promote it.  You accept the requirement of giving a 
non-anonymous email address which I too think is fair to 
all parties.  What else would new members to either list 
have to worry about?

I believe Dennis will let anyone who gives a valid email 
address subscribe to the list, and it will be  their own 
behavour that determines whether they will be banned or 

What I think will lose people with the move to the the 
Yahoo or Maltedmedia lists is the lack of information of 
the death of the Princeton list and with Dennis posting 
regularly to that list and with mor people adding links to 
both lists to their web sites, this is becoming less of an 

Just my $0.02
