Hi David,

Well, this *is* the English NL site

Sorry, but no, it is not.

It is the main site. It is the overall global site. Yes, its written
in English. But it addresses *all* the world and *every* language. is meant for
everybody who does not find elsewhere a marketing team in his/her
native language. 

A somewhat lame argument - others find the localized marketing efforts
on the native language lists and in the groups that form on those lists.

But I want to add one more comment - and perhaps this is the most

Being on a true native language and/or region based list is more then
just an address change, it is a different attitude - on the
international lists one is always less familial. One anecdotal example:
On the international lists Florian is Florian on the De lists he is Flo.
Which is IMO how human nature works.

That is not, I suppose, of issue with regards to a link from what is
correctly described as the International site. 

The only problem IMO is that there are not lists for au or a nz or uk or
some grouping of those.
