I'm a board member I subscribe to the general list, as well as all other
Oclug Lists and I'm aware of this discussion. At present I see no need to
change the current list structure. 2 spam message do not qualify as a problem
in my opinion. My line on spam would be, 2 spam message a day for 2 weeks.
If this where to occur I would support a change to the List set up.
On the issue of Board Members not being members of the General List. This is
something that as bothered me for some time and I think it is incompatiable
with being a Board Member. How could such a Board Member(s) consider
themselves to be serving the Membership if they do not belong to the list.
If this proves to be true I will push for a change to the Bylaws, so that it
is required of all Board Members to subcribed to all Oclug Lists. If Board
Members for some reason suggest that they don't have the time for that sort
of this then I suggest that they should not have stood for election.
