i will not leave you because i learn a lot and have a lot of fun
(more than annoyment). and i'm not in favor of many lists (now i read
scouts-l scouting-europe pfadi-liste [german] and scout-girls-l). i
don't want them to become more.
but OTOH regional or national lists could help to filter the topics:
discussions about the new BSA-merit-badge-application-form would
better fit in scouts-bsa-l than in an international list ...
