I agree with Miron.  In my opinion, this list will always have the preeminence that comes from seniority and history, and anyone still on it at this point in the Oils' history is obviously a dedicated Powderworker.  The FB group is a fine supplement, but as someone who has become tired of social media in general, I only see snippets of what's on the FB group, and that's only once or twice a week.  In contrast, I check my email every day and am never disappointed to find activity on this list, even when it is NMOC or LMOC.

no relationship.

I am admin here but not on FB.

I see no reason to close this list down. not everyone uses FB. plus, it can be tiresome trawling thru all the posts on FB

How could people get so unkind?

Hey comrades;

What is the relationship between this group and the FB page? Are there any admins from here who also mange the Powderworker page on Facey? 

How many fans are now using FB instead of this list? 

Are email forums like this an outdated discussion platform? Is email in itself dead in the water? 

It seems the discussion on FB is very vibrant and robust, and is reaching out to more ppl. 

I remember logging into this group in the 90s when email was a novelty.
