	Well, I thought that I had answered this - as it applies to me,
anyhow.  The reports that we receive from the UK (and everywhere else, for
that matter) are of particular interest to me.  I don't personally have a
problem with simultaneous discussion (I participated on a very active
MASSACHUSETTS LEPS discussion group when in Vermont, and while it did not
impact LEPS-L per se, I did find it necessary to encourage many of those
participants to forward their very interesting reports to LEPS-L), but the
implication here has been that many of the currently active participants
from the UK desire to take their conversation to a more local forum.  I, for
one, would be disappointed if this resulted in fewer posts from the UK.
