Hi Mike,

I am not sure that that is the best solution... I personally am not 
terribly good at going to forum's to check discussion groups. I think 
that there are others like me in that regard. Thus relying just on the 
portal may reduce the involvement of some people.

I would prefer to see email at least as an option. If we can find a way 
to do both that would be the ideal mechanism to me. If emails are 
archived and added to a discussion forum on the portal, and comments 
that are added to the portal are sent to the mailing list that would be 
ideal. Darran, is something like that possible? The portal would end up 
being the archive but I (and others like me) could still process the 
list via email...

Our experience with trying to get people to use mailing lists other than ag-tech has not been good and this seems to be custom-made for a message board approach.
