*I don't want to crush the free spirit of enterprise here*

I am not shocked much to hear this from you because this is the image we
have for open source free projects, bad interface, average functionality,
dim colours, lots of bugs and self-service :D

why only commercial market has the right or the mind to 'stand out from the
crowd' and provide exceptional services with user friendly experience?

You can of course disagree with me but if you ask me I would love to take
this mailing list beyond ONLY A MAILING LIST to compete any other commercial
service by introducing many other features and may be many other services we
can creep with combined effort and even if we make few bucks at the end of
the day then that would be a fair deal too :)

world has to move, you can't and should not stop this process of exceling in
your field otherwise you will be left very behind and you might not be help
people with best of your resources...

the web is not what we had before, thanks to the contributors .... we must
move forward...

by the way how much do you pay google for their exceptionally good services?
(though google earns a lot from us indirectly)

I dont think it is a bad idea to take this mailing list to the next level of
user-friendly-experience where we can make our own standard of

And as long as about getting my teeth into a project then I am a very busy
developer and already have too much in my plate it is only my sincerity and
respect for Daniels great efforts and devotion to this mailing list for
contribution and nothing more than that.
