How about... close the list to nonmembers, and include in the bounce message a message to the effect that the news server is still open for nonmenbers to post to (will have to think about the wording). > Forums are a pain but have better historical context since they keep > their threading better than a mailman archive.

The problem is the mapping between newsgroup->forum really doesn't work well since the posting styles are different. Tony
