You were one of the first (if not the first) mailing
lists in Organic Chemistry. It is sad but we all are
to blame for the decreasing participation. Many seemed
to have moved on to more evolved & less simple
networking methods. Please do accept my gratitude for
allowing me to be a part of the list.
It is a choice one has to make, but we live in hope
and I personally look forward to some news that you
have been motivated to continue.
Till then, all the best.
