I don't see this. I allow for this opinion, however.
This list has always been attractive to a wide variety of people, some
skilled and some not. I think it would be a mistake to exclude anyone
who is interested even in the least in videoconferencing, no matter what
platform or developer. Perhaps you should step back and look at the
progress this list has helped to bring along over the time it has been
in existence.
We should put on the ftp server one of the original versions to compare.
I am sure it would indeed be amazing.
Just as an example, how many different cap cards were supported by the
earliest version?
So quit carping and start interacting!!!!!
What is a listserv?
List Info?
List Archives?
Reflector lists?
