yes the responses were a little surprising to me as well. When I first
read your proposal my reaction was "sure, why not". Then reading the
responses from Mark, the Andrews and others on how we use the channel
and the nature of communication there I started to think the
spontaneity and free-form flow of the conversations are very valuable
and it would be a pity if we lost that.
