Subject: Pass The Baton (Please Read, Important)


U2-Users,

        As so many people have stated, no one could ever replace Clif.
    As a result, we at U2UG.org are establishing a group of people (with
    Clif's help) to collectively try to carry the load. Since Clif has
    committed to closing down the lists, the Establishing Board the U2
    Users Group is offering to assume the hosting and moderation of the
    u2-users and u2-community lists that are currently at oliver.com. By
    making this offer U2UG is also stating our commitment to the Freedom
    principles the lists have always enjoyed. The lists will remain
    Free/Gratis and Free/Libre (what Clif referred to a "free as in
    beer" and "free as in Freedom"). Specifically, there is no monetary
    fee for joining the lists. Also, membership in U2UG is not required
    to subscribe to and participate in the lists. All postings to the
    lists will continue to be considered to be public domain for the
    benefit of all.

        Additionally:

       1. Both the technical and discussion lists will be maintained.
          They will continue to be separate, so that those who wish to
          skip the chatter will continue to enjoy that option.
       2. You will have a reasonable level of protection from Viruses
          and Spam (apologies to the Hormel corporation). Most people
          don't realize it, but Clif spends a lot of time saving the
          list from these two modern evils. One of the big differences
          between CDP (unmoderated) and U2-users (moderated) is the lack
          of pornography, fake Microsoft Patches, and enlargement offers.
       3. The one virtue that we as moderators will not be able to
          uphold is the quality and commitment of the people who post to
          this list. Everyone of you who asks, answers, or listens in,
          will have to do that part. Judging by the quality we've all
          seen up to now, that won't be a problem.

    We are willing to take the baton which Clif has chosen to hand off. 
Now, we just need all of you to take the ride with us. Clif will provide 
us, as his heirs, with all the current subscribers. There will be an 
opt-out for anyone who feels that it just won't be the same with new 
hands on the wheel. If you don't want Clif to pass you along, you can 
opt out before May 1st, but we really want to keep the group together, 
so please consider staying.
    Questions, wishes, suggestions and comments, can be sent to
