Not a bad idea (below), I guess, but I don't really plan on starting yet
another list.  There is the coral-free-for-all list on Yahoo.

By the way, speaking of free-for-all, I've been contemplating NOT
moderating the list for awhile and just let things go nuts.  Might be

By the way, I have recently not let some of the job postings go through
the list because they had nothing to do with coral reef conservation (at
least so far as I could tell).  For a more thorough search of jobs of
all types, try the USG's Office of Personnel Management.

Dear Jim and coral-list administrators,

I have just unsubscribed from coral-list. As a researcher on coral reefs
for 30 years, and a professor, I have used coral list many times over
the years to alert students about jobs and workshops, and I have also
learned of conferences and professional news. 

However, gradually the list has become more and more dominated by
opinion-pieces, diatribes, and discussions. It's just too much to wade
through, to find professionally-relevant postings. 

I suggest that you consider creating one list for announcements of jobs,
workshops, etc. 

And another list for discussions and requests for individual help. 

That would save future listers from having to wade through both when
they are only interested in one of these 2 quite different types of lists. 

Best wishes,
