I hope this doesn't mean that we are splintering SCOUTS-L into exclusive
groups! I'm not a member of OA yet, because my troop is still too new to
have had an election, but I do follow the postings, and, in fact, have
become interested in OA *BECAUSE* of some of the postings. Similarly, I'm
not a member of GSUSA, but follow some of the postings regarding that
organization as well. It's the egalitarian and diverse aspect of SCOUTS-L
that makes it a valuable resource. I'd hate to see the development of
SCOUTM-L with membership restricted to Scoutmasters, etc. etc.
