Subject: [SCHOOL-IT] Listserv suggestion
Hi, longtime lurker, first time poster. I've appreciated this listserv,
lots of good discussions, suggestions, commentary, etc. I'm tired of the
listserv format, though. It was a challenge to keep my email inbox
organized, deciding if I wanted to keep info, etc. I switched recently to
'digest' style, which reduces it to one email a day, but a very hard to read

something like phpbb (www.phpbb.com) or something similar, something with
