     My response----------

     Very eloquently put, Joe!!  Likewise I think the list should remain
open, unimpeded and/or free to anyone.
     Also, Greg Miller has done simply an outstanding job since its
     Some recent issues, such as the collective capacity of this list, have
alluded to a NAFEX "Board" decision.
     I strongly encourage those with such intense desires to attend a few
Board meetings, and become involved in the decison making process.

     Wishing you all a great Holiday season, and more importantly, great
anticipation for my favorite, GroundHogs Day which is in honor of my only
living Guru, Ram Baba WoodChukar (vs Pux. Phil of PA----sorry, Jacq!!).

Ed, So. Indiana, Heaven, etc.
