Sorry for not translating my message... You can use Babelfish to translate it (http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/tr).
I think that this is a very good proposal, because there sure are a lot of lists that are "dead", unused or obsolete and they're making it very difficult for new activists in the IMC comunity. I'm new in the network (IMC Bulgaria is online since a month or so...) and it was very hard for me to put myself on the right track in this jungle of lists... Yeah, the idea of deleting so many lists is a bit too radical, but when we delete just the "dead" and obsolete lists I think it will make the global work and communication a lot easier.
But it will be not so easy to decide which lists to delete. I read the "list of lists", which Guamanian proposes to delete and there sure are lists, which are usefull and they must not be deleted. So we should make a very good research to decide for deletion/not deletion of one list or another.
I also agree with sending this proposal to all lists concerned so that they can make up their own minds. There should be a serious discussion before we take action.
I also read the Mailing List Consolidation proposal (http://docs.indymedia.org/view/Global/ListRestructuringProposal) and I agree with most of the points. But I find
>Point 1.5: No mail should go through to imc-process that is not translated in english and spanish as was decided upon by
>a proposal initiated by imc-italy and "concensed" upon some time ago.
for not so good and reasonable. Because some of us can speak (and write) in english and spanish, oder in english and german, other in english and portuguese or english and italian. So why "english and spanish"? I for example can not transpale my e-mails into spanish, just into german, so my mail will be rejected or what?
Also "Point 2" should be made a bit clearer, because this new process of subscribing is a bit difficult.
So mainly I support this idea of clearing the unused and dead lists to make the work of all global IMC activists a lot easier...
