I hate having to repeat myself.
RootsWeb's policy on list ownership:
HAS NOT CHANGED ONE IOTA AT ANY TIME
IN OUR ENTIRE EXISTENCE AS A SITE.
Locality lists are free to USGenWeb/WorldGenWebbers, Maiser lists
are free, all other lists are two per Sponsor unless other
arrangements are made.
And we *will* make other arrangements for folks who want to own more
than two lists, and for folks who can tell us with a straight face
that $24/year is a hardship.
(And who hopefully have the tact not to turn around and then brag in
public about their full collection of Broderbund CD-ROMs ... ): ).
