Well, not really. I believe that the list is an important industry 
resource. OASIS values the list; otherwise we would not have hosted it 
for the past three years. But this list must necesarily be a bit lower 
on the priority scale than our member activities. Given finite resources 
we must provide services to our members first.

That said, the simplest solution is what I have already suggested a 
number of times: notify us when there's a problem so that we can address 
it, rather than complaining to the list about how bad a job we're doing. 
With a little cooperation from the list subscribers we can keep things 
running pretty well with limited resources.
