Perhaps we might want the lists combined?  There seems little difference between the photo list and a combined list.  I belong to both and just use the delete button when I want to skip the discussion but often people forget to change the subject line so I probably miss things but sometimes time is a factor that takes precedence.   Just a thought.  I will send this to both lists.  I think John is the person to make the final decision and I know he will make a fair and well thought out one.  He always has in the past.

If such a thread were soley initiated on iris-talk, those 
non-members would never be aware of it and would not be
