I don't see how that solves the problem that James has raised. The problem,
as I understand (and share) it, is that in the past what was exciting about
this list was precisely the discussions. Making two lists - one just for
information and the other for sniping - still does nothing for those who would
like a list that offers stimulating, intelligent, challenging discussion about
experimental film. But I don't think the problem has a solution, other than
the tedious and labor-intensive one of having a moderated list.
