Subject: [slim] Discussion list overload and Gossamer Forum

Hi Folks,

I'd like to get some feedback from folks on the list about the volume of
mail on this discussion list.

Despite doing my best to configure my mailer, I'm feeling overwhelmed by the
volume of messages. The vast majority of the traffic is great, but we may
be reaching the breaking point on the list.

One would be to split the list into multiple smaller lists, but I fear that
this would fragment the community too much.

Personally, I prefer mailing lists to web-based forums, but I think we're
reaching the limit of what's manageable on a discussion list.
The leading candidate is Gossamer Forum.

One nice feature of Gossamer Forums is that it allows e-mail subcriptions,
which lets folks get daily digests if they prefer. I'd like to hear some
feedback on this move, especially if anyone has experience with this
specific product.

Thanks,

dean
