I am tired of downloading all that people's email having trouble with
Windows 95 and this trumpet winsock and so on. I download all this stuff
just to throw it away when reading the subject. I agree with you that
dividing the list into different areas might solve this problem. But where
make the division? Separate the amateurs from the experienced? Only the
experienced could help the novices in solving their problems! But I could
never help a Windows user in configuring his winsocks and all this stuff.
So I think dividing the different platforms as you also mentioned is
better. But since this divorces the CU-SEEME community there should be a
common list for all this general and social concerns.
