[Citizendium-l] That deadline

May I just pop in here and remind people that the list's archives , 
although "perhaps" not quite up to date, have the ability to sort posts 
into threads and such.....much easier than fiddling with  e-mail clients 
to attempt the same thing.

I have just been trolling through them (in the nicest possible way)  and 
found them very useful for getting to grips with what has been discussed 
so far.

Cheers,
Phil.
