xanthene <--> listnames
i thought i had 2 responses to the idea of combining endocrine disruptin
lists, but it looks like i deleted one by mistake. both were sent to bad
dioxin-l addresses, so i am reposting the one i still have, below. the
other was in support of the idea too (i think).
to respond to jackie's question, i was thinking of a combined, open list.
but obviously, a closed list, or even an email address book grouping, is
necessary on various occassions. all other needs--giving info or looking
for info--are improved by a bigger, open list ... i think!

In principle, I support the idea of combining the 3 lists but I would
caution against merely merging the addresses. The dioxin-l list is open
(hi, Dr. Bill!) and we need to evaluate if that is the sort of arrangement
we want. CLosed lists allow for more frank discussion but can be a pain to
administer, depending upon their size. What exactly did you have in mind?
