Hello Brian,

You know how easy it is to set up a Mailman list. I think FLUG is a great 
idea. The mass of banter could move there and the LUG could be what the 
name suggests.

Just a guess, but the 1,800? who DON"T post on the LUG because they prefer 
NOT to be abused my many of the "regulars" with keyboard diarrhea might 
actually post questions on Leica practice and technique. That topic would 
be hard to exhaust  in several lifetimes, right? We might even see a few 
more interesting Leica images too.

Whenever I post something, I tend to get a lot of private mail. To me, this 
suggests the above. Not everyone is thick-skinned or in the mood for an 
argument.  I, for one, have ZERO interest in Canon or the latest passing 
trend in digital capture. The latest films from Kodak and Fuji, yes.

Best Regards,
