Guess this comes with the territory.  Moderating another mail-list
could be time-consuming.  As noted before, perhaps explanations and/or samples
of basic coding questions (adding skills, classes, spells, spec procs, FLAGS, etc)
under 2.x and 3.x could be put on the WWW (edit & HTML-ize coding.doc?).
Add links for those needing to brush up on their C?
The Circle FAQ mentions fixes for the most part.  Updating/adding new mail
archives can help too. Good luck.

Later Days,
Steve Wilson
