responses folks may have to Wendell's inquiry above. The email I receive is
usually from folks that can't find a group in their area. As the email contact
for the Seattle group, I get an inquiry about once a month. The Seattle group
went into hibernation for a couple years when the core members either moved or
lost interest and we didn't have critical mass. We restarted the group a year
ago after I had rec'd a half-dozen or so inquiries, all due to the Web site.
