Mailer administrivia

So list members, here is one more chance to voice your concerns
over a policy issue.   Please let me (not the list) know if you
would like me to remove the current restriction on posting.

The 6bone list has been moved to majordomo.
The "normal" configuration here is to restrict
postings to list members.  One group (WIDE) is 
asking for that restriction to be removed.

You have three choices:

	Yes - remove the restriction
	No  - keep the restriction
	No Response - Keep the restriction.

There are 877 subscribers to this list.  I'll take comments/votes 
for the next two weeks and will post the results (and make the changes, if any)
to the list on 06 Jan 1998.  I would like at least a 10% response.

Thanks for your time
