Thanks for your comments. I hadn't really considered number 3, but I can see how some people might feel that way.

Based on my experience with many lists over the years, I have seen that in
most of them, there are only few active members. Most lurk. I suppose there
are some possible reasons - (1) it takes a lot of time and interest to
write msgs and (2) many are intimidated in posting msgs since they do not
know what the responses would be and (3) many may not want to present views
which may come to hurt them in their social or financial lives.

Hello Morten. You make some very good points. Is that not the purpose of
discussion? Perhaps Eldon will address your moderation issues. I was
simply offering one possible explanation for why the great majority of the
list members don't contribute to the list. If mine is not a correct
explanation, perhaps you could offer another reason that might explain it.
