As many folks have already stated, variety is the spice of life, and I see no reason why Corfid and the NG cannot co-exist in Harmony.

Each group has its own distinct personality and I find both attractive. The drawback of having two forums is that interesting info may not make it to both groups. Then again, what is considered interesting is defined by the personality of the group itself, so perhaps it's no big deal after all.

As for what is considered important, as opposed to just interesting, I think the important news would make it to both groups. We have enough people in both places to see to that.

My personal preference? Well, it's the NG, but it's not a matter of personality. As stated above, I am quite happy with both flavours. I do, however, have very low vision (about 10%). So I manage my mail as much out of need as I do personal habit. Individual mails with my own filing system make my life a heck of a lot easier than reading an internet site, even a well organised one such as Corfid.

Hey, the bottom line, after all, is that we still have a LOT of people interested in GORD. Things are fine just the way they are.

Note to John Fowles -- you do a fabulous job on both lists, and it is sincerely appreciated. By the way, John, I cannot access my home email till perhaps Monday. If you want to copy this over to the NG, feel free to do so.

Ditto - my sister bought several bumperstickers at the local 6Ts (as in Sixties) store, including one which reads: "Somewhere in Texas a village is missing its idiot" - she's a Democrat in a heavily Republican area. Their yard signs keep mysteriously disappearing so she's putting this one inside the car along the back window.

Thanks! I love the site. I'm kinda partial to the "Are you a good witch or a bad witch" t-shirt at the moment. Rather like the Buck Fush one too.

VBH:

You will dig this...check out this bumpersticker from www.northernsun.com:

*~* The only Bush I trust is my own *~*

I have one on my rear window.
I've purchased several of these. Consequently, I have been flagged down, by enthusiastic drivers,at various traffic stops here in Denver....I keep plenty on-hand, in my glovebox compartment, to pass around. LOL!

Remember what happened last time when people started to talk polictics? This isn't the place. If you all decide it is, then perhaps I'll join in if you want to hear some real truth.

Hey hey, I laughed because the bumpersticker was funny. I'm equally untrusting of them all and didn't mean to start anything

I have to say, the last two pix, Kerry and Bushy, are hilarious!!! I needed a good laugh this morning, and the "morphing" of Kerry into Herman Munster, and "old snake eyes" were just what I needed!! Thanks!

John,I enjoy your recaps, and I have on occasion checked out the newsgroup. I have never posted there. It doesn't seem like the friendliest of venues. But, you keep us posted if there is anything spectacular.

Thanks for all you do.
