While I have only been subscribing to this list for a few couple of weeks, I
have found it to be most enlightening. I much prefer this format to a
newsgroup, where I have found that I must do an unbelievable amount of
slogging to get to the good stuff. That process can be expensive, as I must
pay long-distance phone charges for my on-line time (yes, my server is the
dreaded AOL, I can't hide it). Reading APD is a daily pleasure for me, so I
hope it continues whether or not a plant newsgroup is formed.
