Agreed. I was trying to think through a public list, a private list and 
then a way for people to get very private help. Some minor rewrites to 
move things forward:

Some Advice about Volunteering:

- Volunteering starts at home: Don't give more than you can afford to give.

- Volunteering doesn't mean unprofessional: Volunteers don't lower their 
standard just because we aren't paid!

- Volunteers have lives and jobs: Don't over commit and ask for help 
EARLY if you are overwhelmed, get sick, or just need more assistance.

- Volunteerism and burn out are real issues: If you need help, there are 
lots of members here who understand your pain.  Don't be afraid to
ask for it!  Reach out to <list to be determined> for public input, for a more private discussion, or just reach 
out to another member 1:1.

Please don't suffer in silence.  We are all a big Apache family and we 
are here to help!
