The complaints that I hear most often, however, are in regards to discussions that take place on the list. What I propose is that if we wish to discuss something (e.g. these proposed changes to CRYOLIST usage policy), the original poster initiates the topic by posting a message to the list. All public responses to that posting then occur online at http://cryolist.org/discussion/ (If you prefer to make your comments private, email the original poster instead.) Finally, the original poster will summarize the whole discussion in ONE SINGLE follow-up email to the list.

As someone who has lurked far more than participating, I have appreciated the list in its former form. Yes - there have been some discussions that ran on longer than I might have wanted, but I always had the choice to simply delete those messages after a quick scan. While the new format will keep my mailbox leaner and meaner, I will have to remember to choose to scan the discussions. I suspect that I, for one, won't.
Todd - thanks for your efforts to keep the Cryolist relevant!
