I think that svlug ought to maintain it's capabilities
as it always has. I find the idea shocking, as it goes
completely against the grain of what svlug has symbolized
over the years. I have maintained my own routable, full
service network (neuralscape) for a decade -- and I have
learned so much from doing so, I find it shocking a group
of geeks would even consider such nonsense. If svlug moves
to google groups, I for one will not be continuing my
presence on this list.
