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.

> Dear ORGLIST members
> ORGLIST has been operating under my coordination since 1997. Between
> 2000 and 2006 the list traffic maintained an average of ca. 1
> message/day, and has declined since then. In 2010 and 2011 we are
> observing almost no activity.
> Other tools are nowadays available for virtual interaction, but I won't
> invest in changing the ORGLIST framework, neither in promoting the list.
> And time has arrived for domain renewal. I see no meaning in
> maintaining it.
> If there are no better ideas, we will shut down the list in April, and
> probably keep the archive accessible in some web site.
