No, I'm not suggesting anything.  It was a comment on how 
things are as they stand.  The decision on whether to 
belong or not belong to any specific group is each 
member's decision and I wouldn't speculate on their 
reasons for the decision they make.  Bob Pries gave those 
reasons at one time, but they may have changed.  If they 
are valid reasons for him alone, then it is sufficient for 
me.  His reasons could well have changed at this point.  
But I did not know you could cross-post unless you were a 
member of both lists.

As for list postings, it seems to me a group is comprised 
of the members that belong to that group.  So any group is 
in and of itself a separate group.  Postings in a group 
would take the tone of the active posters at any given 
time on any given subject.  Unless the membership in one 
group is contingent on membership in another group, then 
the constraints would be input from members of a group, as 
when Linda Mann spoke up, or upon parameters set by the 
list owner, as when John spoke up about the thread.  Also, 
on cross posting, I did try earlier.  I used the reply 
function from iris-talk and noticed it was only being sent 
to the one group, though Neil cross posted.  I made a typo 
on the iris-photos address so transmission to that group 
was rejected.
