You may do that of course. I also prophylactically snatched up
ezmlm-idx.org to prevent domain speculation.
I've been in touch with Bruce G. and I do have the identity of the person
who was the previous domain registrant.
My only concern about this whole mess with the domain is how to keep it
from recurring. As I understand the current situation, the previous
registrant of ezmlm.org had an invalid e-mail on record with the registrar
and so didn't get the expiration warnings. But even without that sort of a
mess, someone could easily fall ill or have other issues, and there needs
to be a succession plan and a better way to do this.
For example, I'm 49, eat too much at McDonald's and Starbucks, ride a
motorcycle, have a pilot's license, and also drink and gamble excessively.
The list of things that could kill me in any given week is substantial. I
could catch a bullet between the eyes from another Blackjack player because
I'm counting cards and split 10's--and that is probably my smallest risk. :
OK, you could register ezmlm.net (if you haven't already), or I could
donate ezmlm-idx.org for group use. But how do we have joint ownership or
somehow keep the mistake that happened with ezmlm.org from recurring?
It seems to me we ought to answer those questions before we select a domain
name or try to obtain or rebuild the mailing list ...
Thanks, Dave Ashley
