Actually, trading is one reason I moved to start this list, as we knew
it would be showing up on ShadowRN otherwise. Plus, that combined with
discussion would have added the volume you see on our list now to the
already formidable volume of the ShadowRN list. Yuck!

As for the four seperate lists you propose, that may work for
Newsgroups but I can't see it fitting with a mailing list like this.
ShadowRN (our sister list) has been quite successful, and has been
around for years with needing to splinter into sublists. I believe the
members here would like to stick to the same formula. Can some of you
imagine the chaos of trying to keep up with a ShadowRN-Info,
ShadowRN-Story, and ShadowRN-Game? Eeeek!

No, for now I think we will stay with just the SRCard list as a sole
entity. Still, thanx for the suggestion, they're always welcome.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
