I still use the cards, the driver, and the list. I also greatly appreciate all the help that has come from the list but can understand wanting to get to something that is more manageable. It is a shame that there isn't a way to define a domain that does not get exploited by the spammers and could be used for communities such as this one.
Re: [ivtv-users] Pondering if it is worth moderating these lists any more..
What about having a form on the ivtv site that allows for a submission but can only be accessed if you are a member. Even have the submitter receive an email that is required to approve the submission and enter in a unlock code provided. Then the submission can be posted as a new blog entry if it is of legitimate consideration. Users would subscribe to an rss feed to get the notifications and can then respond (again through a controlled approach). If a user abuses the rights they get pulled. I suppose this would all be to much work though as well. Not really an easy thing to solve.
Again, I personally appreciate all the hard work and great help you have all been over the years.
