To be truthful, I find the listserv easier to respond to since I check my
email for other things. I haven't been into the ARMA site lately since it
takes an extra couple of steps. Maybe the ARMA discussion group could be
set up to send a message to all who would like one when a new posting has
been made - it would contain a link directly to the discussion forum (one
click and we're there) - of course, that could be too cumbersome if there
are a lot of postings. As far as your idea for a survey, I'd be interested
in going along with whatever you'd like to try but have no great ideas.
