Well I'm an old fart 71 years of age and If I can deal with discourse I'm 
sure you can. BTW it's far more efficient than email is for this type of 
list. Believe me I like email and loved nntp before that, but like another 
poster mentioned, a lot of do about nothing!! Change is inevitable. I highly 
suspect that the experts that know GIMP well, like offnuts etc., will be on 
the Discourse list. So that's where I'll be.

I don't like the old type of web forum, but Discourse is extremely good and 
I wasn't sure I'd like it, when Gnome moved over several years back. But I 
had to eat my words and found it to be better than email, and I'm more 
comfortable in a term than a Goey!

Whatever, some people just can't handle change. Pussies! :-) jkg!
