Les, there are other scout lists on the "news groups" part of your
browser. I'm not sure how you do it in you browser, but you need to
search all news groups. This can take up to ten to fifteen minutes.
Then you start to scroll down the list. Groups to look for are:
alt.scouting, rec.scouting.usa, rec.scouting.misc, and
rec.scouting.issues. None of these news groups has the class that
Scouts-L has. You will see a lot of people who post on here, also post
on these news groups, but a lot of those news group users don't do
anything here, and you will see why. There are some real different
people on rec.scouting.issues. One, an English scout leader can get
real nasty in his opinions. And Ed Dunne still posts stuff there. And
you know what happened to him on Scouts-L?
Be patient, take the time to scan all news groups and try some new
stuff. Using news groups tends to lock up my Netscape Navigator, so I
switch to Internet Explorer to go to news groups. You will see some
interesting sites geared to the outdoors, hiking, cooking and other
places that can relate to scouting and scout skills.
