Anna! My point is more than one of a principle it is the fact that I've not seen any point in un
subscribring people in a global working group mailing lists based un the assumption that they are just
lurker(not expereinced and just seating around).
In imc-Germany it was a point about security and people where unsubcribed from the site-admin-list
where people think sensitive issues are being discussed and not in all imc-Germany lists.
I think the only closed(to men) list that I know in the network is womyn list and when someone noticed
that they brought it up to process and a discussion was started about it.
I'm surely struggling against having a central committee type list for newimc and rather wanting to
get as many people as possible in the network participate in the discussion and you sure know that
place is process.

Imagine that you wanted to know what exactly is the situation with other imcs from a particular
continent. Check how many mails are sent here with different subject and different continent. Tell me
from which part of the archives you will start to read.
And may be answer the question why should some one go to all that problem when they can simply
subscribe in the lists and follow how the discussions go??.
