Would you and others mind not confusing people further by encouraging them to start new permaculture lists,
nearly always destined to be hard to find, obscure and little used? This only serves to fragment the permaculture 
community further. Anyone can create a new mailing list and many do as it takes little or no work. Drawing subscribers 
and getting them to post is another matter. I think it is important to get the most permaculture people together in the 
fewest places and make those places as robust and useful as possible. A lot of people have gone to a lot of trouble to 
make our permaculture list that kind of place and I would hate to see their efforts wasted. Dozens of little splinter 
lists serve few people and rarely develop into valuable resources.

Well done databases, websites, blogs and wikis are another matter. The Permaculture Wiki is guaranteed to give those who 
want their permaculture designs, ideas, theories and writings seen and evaluated better than average prominence in 
cyberworld, and they get Googled easier.
