Ask NAFEX why it is not a NAFEX sponsored group. Re-read my recent post
abut why, when and how this list/group was created - it was requested by 
NAFEX members dissatisfied with their Yahoo group. I started this list 
and transferred the Yahoo message archives to it. I own and control it 
and plan to do this permanently.
IOW I did not start it on my own on a lark using the NAFEX name, I was 
asked to start it by NAFEX members for the benefit of NAFEX members, 
with emphasis on that last word.

There is no way to change the name of this list. The software does not 
allow it. We are stuck with this name. I do have another list already 
configured called orangegrapevine...If anyone would like to develop a 
fruit explorer forum there I would be delighted and will fine tune and 
announce it here. Here's the URL:
Orange Grapevine
"the grapevine"
orangegrapevine
http://lists.ibiblio.org/mailman/listinfo/orangegrapevine
It is ready to go with Google searching, open message archives, blog and 
group mirror sites and external website to use as a reference library 
and awaiting subscribers and list traffic.

I do not think it would be advisable to rock the boat on this rare and 
exceptional forum. I would as soon leave it the way it is accomodating 
Nafex and non Nafex members as subscribers. It is up to NAFEX to make 
use of this forum or start and develop a different one, of value to members.
