     Well, to be accurate about my minor hissy, what I did was post to RACC
through Google Groups about the issue, not to the Yahoo group.  I was gearing
up for the busy part of the year at work, and didn't think things through as
much as I should have.

     As for the boolean overlap, there's also now people who find out about
new ASH issues from my LiveJournal.  Am I widening my audience, or
balkanizing it?  Hard to say, given that it's pretty small to start with, and
one or two people make for a big percentage.

     Dave Van Domelen, fortunately writes because he enjoys writing, not
because he craves a big audience.  :)
