not dead, but sleeping

I received four answers to my query, and none posted to the list. Seems 
to me that, if we want this list to survive, we need to use it more.
Ron's TILS list is fine, and I'm a regular there, but some of you do not 
post to both lists.

At the time that UK-Leps split off, I feared that it would greatly 
reduce our activity, and indeed it did. That's a very lively list, with 
much local interest.
I like the internationality of Leps list.

Once TILS started their list, with a freedom to bicker, talk about God, 
and pursue minutiae of taxons beyond the sub-species ... it drew off 
considerable of our heat and fire. What, after all, does leps list offer 
that TILS Leps-Talk does not also provide?

Brightness falls from the air, Queens have died young and fair, dust 
hath closed Helen's eye ...

The people who responded to my query are all subscribed to TILS as well.
I have a sentimental fondness for the leps list, but see no reason to 
keep it on life support if it's no longer needed.

I throw this thought out in hopes that all of you will leap to its 
defence. On list, not in private.

Today I will put on plate armor and go chop nettles, in hopes that my 
arthritis will let up a bit. Nobody has been eating them, and new, fresh 
nettles must be provided for the second brood.
