I see it as a challenge for my spam filter, but others might not be so

We essentially have a story/portal site - it's the archives.  When I'm 
at work and can't post, I follow conversations in the archives.  It 
works quite well, and came free with the mailing software.  Slap a 
pretty front end on that and we'd have a portal.

Wouldn't that be sending a slightly confused message?  Many people on 
list are rabidly pro Free-Software, and we could all demonstrate this 
by... using proprietry software.

On the other hand, it's not like anyone is in charge here.  If you 
start a CLUG website and everyone uses it, then it'll be *the* CLUG 

And it would be nice to have an up-to-date webpage.
