I agree.

It seems like a number of people are okay with non-TUHS specific topis 
being discussed on TUHS.  I'm sure there are others that want non-TUHS 
specific topics to stay off TUHS.  I feel like each group is entitled to 
their opinions.

So, perhaps we could leverage technology to satisfy both groups.

I believe that Warren hosts TUHS using Mailman.  I'm fairly certain that 
Mailman supports topics / key words.  Thus we could possible configure 
Mailman to support such topics and allow subscribers to select which 
topics they care about and the ever so important if they want to receive 
messages that don't match any defined topics.

I routinely find things being discussed that I didn't know I was 
interested in, but learned that I was while reading.  I almost always 
learn something from every (major) thread.
