I've had an CompuServe account for a number of years and yet didn't realize
I could have been receiving this mailing list there, so ingnorance may be
part of it. Also, CompuServe's message threading used in their forums may
be preferred by some. I checked out the Disney comics forum there and
there is quite a flurry of message activity. Will have to wait until the
newness wears off to see if it remains so.

If your only account is CS, it may be cheaper, but CS is not cheap! I pay
a modest annual rate for my internet account, but CS costs $ per hour and
per message. An off-line reader would help, but it still is expensive.
I would guess that most Disney comic fans do not know of this list. I
noticed that Catherine Yronwode in her "Fit to Print" article in the latest
CBG mentioned a Modesty Blaise mailing list. Have there been similar plugs
for this list?

I checked back to August 26th, and there were no messages from you.
