Howard, it's definitely not a suicide note.
I'm not exactly sure what happened, but quite recently the list owner decided to moderate all messages, at a time whne we have lost some of our moderators. It took me a few days to figure out what was happening, and now I approve many of the messgaes coming through, and I assume Harry is catching the rest. That's the reason that we're slow sometimes, especially if one of us is away from teh computer for a while. In addition, for reasons I also don't know, forum traffic has gone way up in the last few weeks.
If you think it kills your
creative flow, imagine trying to answer questions that you see twice, often some time apart.
Anyway, thanks for patience with us.

Hope all will forgive my impatience, but I wonder if such draconian message approval is still necessary? Kinda kills the creative flow. I have read that there was a problem of some kind a few years ago. Is whatever it was still going on? Is yahoo being a problem? I have a group that I don't moderate, and I have no trouble, beyond a rare weeding of trash. Anyway, it's really not my business, just curious, and hot to get started. Thanks, Howard.
