[nafex] This nafex list

I agree with Lawrence.  I found that when NAFEX made the "decision" to go
in a "more modern way" it became less and less useful in general.

With the list it came to me once I was a member. I did not need to log into
another app, getoads of unrelated crap, I could easily see what was of
interest,  what I could just skip over.  Bells and whistles may be nice for
some things. But I found them distracting.  As far as I could tell the move
to groups had a negative impact - less information, fewer people
participating, more junk and unrelated info.

There are some thing an old fashioned listserv does better than a new
format.  This list is one.  I find it interesting that so much traffic has
just evaporated.  I think, at least in my case, NAFEX the organization
became less important as it became more difficult to use.  Perhaps the 20
to 30 year olds might disagree, but I did not really see them
participating. So, I dropped my membership in NAFEX the organization,
continue to monitor this list and hope for a come back.

Stay well all.
