Hi :)
I was reading somewhere (or perhaps in a film) that Facebook considers
itself to have reached "market saturation" once 55% of the people in a
country/university/other-sample are using it.  Continued investment in
marketing brings diminishing returns so they cut their advertising
budget there (just enough to keep it "ticking over") and increase
their advertising budget elsewhere.

Anyway, this thread wasn't meant to be about bashing social media.
Obviously quite a LOT of us on this list feel much the same way
otherwise we would probably have moved over by now.  A lot of people
DO like social media so i think it's good that TDF has given them a
way of getting help using that sort of method.  Like most things i'd
be surprised if it was perfectly set-up first time but hopefully there
is some way of reporting problems or suggesting new features and maybe
people might see some of those get resolved.

James Lang went back to the original question and like many people in
another thread suggested the drop in traffic might be something to do
with "Reply" taking messages off-list.  Sadly bottom-posting meant his
message got hidden under the signatures so people probably thought it
was just an accidental empty email
"Is this a result of having to "reply all" to get the answer
automatically sent to the list?

I have been led to believe that "reply all" should be used sparingly
and that its indiscriminate use is rude.


It might help if people could write to the postmaster of this mailing
list explaining why they think it's a bad idea for this list to
operate the way it does.  Apparently on other lists people wrote in to
grumble that it wasn't set-up this way previously.  Grumbling to the
mailing-list itself wont get anywhere because none of us can influence
Regards from
Tom :)

       as for me, I don't even know what AskLO is -
           and probably don't want to know if it's similar to Facebook,
       because I too don't want all the additional spam ...
           or the minute-by-minute diaries of the inane.

       I too have been using these computers since the days of the BBs  ;-)
           and see no reason why e-mail should be considered out-of-date.

       BTW - it irks me when someone requests a reply only through facebook
or twittering ... ... ...
          (I happen to enjoy watching, & listening, to the birds, yet they
stay in the yard)
