If you STILL have issues - talk to the list organizer or someone who cares.
I don't and I don't want to see another email on this subject addressed to
the general list apart from others who feel the same way.

Yes, everyone is getting a bit cranky because such a high percentage 
of zmagnette traffic is currently about list issues and not about 
Magnettes.  It's a valid complaint, but it is temporary and we will 
get back to our usual Magnette talk.

As for list hosts, Mark does a really great job hosting several lists 
I participate in.  Generally speaking, they work pretty well.  I 
wouldn't be too quick to jump ship at this point.  Do you have 
something better?  When I first brought this up on Monday, Mark 
immediately responded that there is a problem, it has to do with the 
program that translates between IP addresses and names, and he's 
looking into it.  He also said that a new machine to run the 
nameserver would help.  Why don't we see how much it would cost to do 
that?  We really haven't been here very long.  Give the guy a 
break.  Let's see how this goes for a while and what Mark comes up with.
