      Unfortunately, it is impossible to list everyone, short of copying out
      everyone's e-mail address & typing it in to a posting; I assume this is to
      protect list members' confidentiality. A healthy percentage of the 58
      subscribers are just e-mail addresses, without any identification as to who
      you are, which is why Larry Lozon occasionally posts a request for new
      members to introduce themselves.
      >Also, I have occasionally edited the Archives, which changes the "date" of
      the archive when you go to check out the list. The archives are numbered in
      chronological order so that's what you should go by, not the "date", when
      looking back. On the archives that I edit, I basically delete surplus
      material, such as the "War of 1812: thousands fought over..." etc, to make
      the archives easier to read. I do not delete any part of the message
      actually being posted, but might edit the message being responded to, as
      some people hit the "respond" button which sends the whole message back;
      this is unduly repetitive.
      >I have suggested to Onelist that it would be great if it were
      technologically possible to set up some sort of index system because it is
      very time-consuming to search back through the archives. However, it's
      great that all our postings are being archived on a Onelist server
      somewhere, instead of on our hard drives!
