I have been trying to decide if it worth staying on the list.

I have to agree with the orginal poster that most of these messages
are from PC users who (regardless of why) need help with setting
up the software.

I was hoping that this trend would not continue. A few months ago,
I suggested the idea of splitting the list into Mac and PC. Or, if
possible, one general list about CU-SeeMe and then another for
problems with the software and hardware.

This way people can talk about the program, share info about reflectors,
sites, etc. But messages about how hardware x, video card Y and drivers
Z which only mean anything to those people using the exact same hardware
could be posted to a list for problems.

Go ahead, I got flamed a few months ago, I can take it again.
