That is exactly the intention of giving y'all the power to invite others
to the list: that you'd note and find people you think would do well on
the list and invite the,  How else do you think *you* ended up here? 
Someone noticed you...

Nope.  She's knew to me.  If you think she'd be a good list member, then
invite her!

My own views are oft stated on this area: the field can't yet fruitfully
support two seperate venues without signifcant loss; if we do leave Usenet
as-is as the main active forum the field is going to die, guaranteed,
within 5 years (probably less); and I don't think Usenet is worth saving
or working with (yet).  Unfortunately that leaves me with a me vs Usenet
problem hidden by a thin veneer of trite civility.  <shrug>  I'm just this
guy with an agenda, ya know?
