Re: Newsletters,Societies,and the Internet

"The subject of using the AHS web site for sharing newsletters is an
ongoing one. It is not a dead issue! In fact if you visit the AHS web site at
www.hosta.org , right on the home page you will see:
coming soon to this site:
a special membership site for Limited on-line access to AHS publications 
A full, searchable hosta registration database with photographs
AHS national & regional editor news exchange service 
updated FAQs

It is ludicrous for the AHS to take articles written by non-AHS members, that are shared and read by non-AHS members(via the NLE exchange) and lock them up for viewing only by AHSers.
Del-marva Hosta Society has very few AHS members and very few internet users but I would hope that those that do have computers would be able to peruse articles that are exchanged via an electronic NLE whether they are AHS members or not.
What is the reasoning around denying them access to articles that they might now read if they are included in their society's newsletter?
If the AHS is trying to promote hostas, why not let the public have access to these articles? They may become more interested in hostas and even may join the AHS?
I apologize if this response sounds harsh,
