Actually, we're doing really well!  84 regular subscribers, 35
digest subscribes, and (not taking into account people whose
addresses format oddly, and such other incogruities) 94 distinct
posters in the year 2001.  So everyone says at least "hello".

We are excellent about watching each other's limits and not
flaming.  On most lists, people respond to any slight by charges
and counter charges.  I thought that urban fantasy discussion was
amodel of what should happen when people slightly step over
other's lines: the participants stepped back, and rephrased their
positions so as not to inflame.  On other lists, that would have
led to all badness.

Aargh.  Moving tuesday, and DWJ all packed.  <sullen>  So I can't
think of anything on-topic to say.  Except that I'm posting
meta-data to the list, and that make me think of metafiction, and
how very prone to metafiction DWJ's books are (Spellcoats and
Homeward Bounders being the the two most glaring examples.)

And now, drum roll please, for the number of posts from people
since 1 January.  Everyone give Gill a round of applause! :)
