Just go create the new group in google (its a free country and you can do what you may) and see who joins. Call it svlug-g. If enough people join - well there is the answer to your poll, and this can automatically discontinue. If not, well that is another answer to your poll.
Natural order and meritocracy

Subject: [svlug] Member poll on an alternative to this mailing list

To all SVLUG members:

There has been a proposal to terminate this mailing list
(svlug at lists.svlug.org), and replace it with a Google Group
-- at which point, SVLUG would cease to host or administer
its own online discussion forum. I'm collecting a sense of
the membership, through midnight Tuesday, November 27, and
will report back here with a yes/no tally.

Some things to perhaps keep in mind:
  - SVLUG ceasing to host its own mailing list
  - advertising
  - privacy loss
  - dependency on a business to do our core competency for us
  - SVLUG no longer being able to set spam policy or choose its own
    mail-handling software.

Q:  Do you approve of terminating this mailing list and
    replacing it with a Google Group?  (y/n)

Send your vote to _me directly_ (Darlene Wallach 
<freepalestin at dslextreme.com>.
Do NOT send it to this mailing list.

Thank you for your attention, consideration and

Darlene Wallach
