you asked a couple of good questions, here are my answers...

most definately, it is the most convienent for me since it comes in with
the rest of my e-mail

occasionally, I'll probably have time to only read the list on most days

I can't make any promises. I can't even promise that my contributions will
be valuable. But I am willing to try.

>the APD list just so you can be sure to reach the people who are
>going to be exclusive to one or the other?
Actually, I find the newsgroup's tendancy to flame intimidating, especially
since I consider myself a newbe, so if I have a question I'll probably
stick to the mailing list. (I'd rather get some limited yet sincere
advice than be told how stupid I am.)
>could you get by if we only had the newsgroup?
I'd make do, but become a lot less vocal.
>would only having the newsgroup actually be kind of nice for you?
>would you change your mind if the APD continues to double in
>volume at the current rate?
Once again I'd like to give a whopping big thanks to Shaji for his work
with this list and all the people who gave me advice. Without this list
the prettiest plants in my tank would still be plastic.
