It had to be a labor of love to spend as much time as you did in keeping up with it. It was surely an asset for me to keep up with all that's going on in Alabama. Sorry I didn't make more of an effort to let you know how much I appreciated it.Hope all is going well with you and family.Best wishes,Jim----- Original Message -----From: Amos J WrightSent: Monday, May 23, 2011 10:51 AMSubject: [alabamahistory] Should alabamahistory continue?
Greetings to any subscribers who may still be reading messages from this group .
For some time I have been considering whether to shut down this list in June 2010 I stopped the Alabama History & Culture in the News listingsthose listings sent out 2-3 times a week were a lot of work and I had no idea if anyone was reading them since then I have continued to forward relevant items that come my way, but frankly Im tired of doing that too, since there is never any response or discussion on this list back in the early days of the list [say 1998-2000] various subscribers posted info, asked questions, discussed, etc since then, the list has become a one-way channel from me to some wall out there .
I will probably just stop forwarding items and allow the archives [all 3700+ messages] to sit until Yahoo decides to shut down the groups .
There are currently 182 subscribers to the list if someone else wants to take over as moderator, that will be fine with me A.J. Wright
