      I haven't got caught up on on the email in the list yet, so maybe
      someone mentioned this. The only problem with just providing a list
      of listserves and other groups online is that it leaves people offline
      without much of a way to find anyone. One of the problems with
      the net, is a lot of folks have forgotten how to (or never learned)
      offline networking. I used to keep a file cabinet of flyers, letters,
      and index cards of addresses and phone numbers. For those
      offline, we really need to provide some way to find a mentor.
