Re: [T3] NONA from the ashes

I am talking about promoting the posting stories (articles) to this list
that are specifically written to go to the NONA newsletter. This does not
make any assumption about abstaining from participation in this, or any
other forum. Nor does it make any assumption about each individual making
choices about the material they write and what to do with it. But I do
believe it is wrong to use this list to promote such activity.

Enough said.
