I'm an active moderator for women@ and the workload is not onerous, but 
it does exist, and both the list and the wiki must be monitored. Women@ 
is a special case because we set it up with moderated subscriptions, 
which is why your request to join the list on Saturday was delayed 
several hours -- I was out grocery shopping.

I respect your concerns, Anjana, and appreciate the due diligence you 
are providing, but it doesn't make sense to me to accept any more 
subscription requests for a list with this level of inactivity. Given my 
experience with women@ over the last 5 years, I believe comdev is the 
clearly the best way to go, and is the most likely measure to spark 
increased, visible participation.
