Long live the RP-ML! I, myself, have never had much need to post questions, possibly owing to the wealth of knowledge I've gleaned from reading this wonderful list for many years. (On behalf of many lurkers I suspect,) I express support for this list, chock-full of diverse and knowledgeable folk.

The FB think makes me a bit itchy, but there's a use for it and I've seen blogs manage some dual syndication, so maybe it is possible for the RP-ML too. Certainly has a lot of eyeballs, FB does.

How many on the list? I don't know. I sent "who rp-ml" to, but it never answered, (although "info rp-ml" did as expected.)

Subject: [rp-ml] Question about rp-ml

I was wondering how many people are still subscribing to the rp-ml (compared to several years ago) and if it seems that everyone is going to Facebook these days (not me yet), the rp-ml should maybe have some kind of Facebook page as well (where pictures and videos could also be posted and easily accessed). Even though I still haven't joined any of the social-networking fan clubs, I understand that eventually you have to go with the flow, so I was just wondering if maybe another non-commercial incarnation of our now rather "old and moldy" rp-ml email forum, might encourage more people involved in RP and AM to communicate more easily and more frequently with each other. Don't know, though, how this could be done so that it would ensure and preserve the neutrality and openness that's been the tradition of the rp-ml since its start. Anyway, anyone know how many people are still signed up to rp-ml (doesn't seem like very many)?
