Thank you very much, and so am I.

i take it that you are referring to the site of the norwegian Permaculture association. That site is still under
development. But I will post the url to the group as soon as it is open to the public.

And a good feature it is, I subscribe that way.

Yes, well spam is a problem in some news groups but it doesn't seem to be a overwhelming problem at least not in this
kind of group. But a mailing list like is of course more spam proof but then everything has it's advantages and
disadvantages that's why it might be a good idea to have both the different mailing lists offered around the net, and
a newsgroup.

Mailing list are a good way of communicating, I spent my first months on the net in a "safe heaven" of a woodcarver
mailing list. i have a lot to thank those "wood chucks" for, kind of teaching me the ropes. but mailing lists and
newsgroups tend to attract differnet clientele and subjects so i think it would be a good thing to have both.

Yes but that url wasn't too easy to find.

 Well thank you very much for the good hearted input. Since the input so far (both on the list and privately) seems to
be positive i will go ahead and create the group. One important part of that process creating a new group is to prove
that there is ongoing communication on the subject of the group on the net. Would it be possible to get a copy of
stats. on the posting to the different lyris forums that you host? Not names of senders of course just numbers for a
given period.
