Email list and forum

This is a helpful discussion. For some reason I had thought that the intent
was to gradually kill off the mailing list and move all discussion to the
forum. I am glad to hear that's not the case.

I am very content to let the forum and mail list survive side by side, and
to let Charles Darwin sort out what happens to them long term. 

I think the biggest risk to the survival of both is that Facebook and other
social media sites have captured much of the attention of the younger
generations. There's a lot of interest in bulbs among younger people, but
they're interacting mostly in social media. I wouldn't even mind that, but
the way they work puts the focus almost completely on photos. It's very
difficult to have a meaningful written discussion there, which is what I've
always loved about PBS.

Many thanks to the small group of stalwarts who have been keeping the lights
