The following message is relayed to you by email@example.com
There was a comment recently suggesting the quality of postings in TROM
list was higher earlier than it is now. In assessing that statement you
want to take account of the fact that the replays are selected. One of
the purposes of the /IVy/ replays (selections) was to select certain
emails and send them out weekly to reduce the quantity some people
received, and of course it was higher quality emails which were selected.
It is good that Robin brought to our attention some points about
communicating to a group (especially a group like this where you cannot
observe people's reactions). When I ran the /IVy/ list I developed a
sort of policy on this. I wrote it up a rather great length and you can
see it at: http://www.antology.info/articledetails.php?id_art=37 .
(Perhaps you should scroll halfway down! And start there.)
All best wishes,
