Joan, I don't believe we should need to go outside Rootsweb to find answers to
what's going on with the servers, lists, et al. I do believe that Rootsweb should
provide the information to us in a timely manner. And asking the HelpDesk what's
going on takes a long time to get an answer - sometimes 24 hours. LO is a more
instant method of getting answers and information. That's why people write LO
rather than the HelpDesk when something comes up. Some may argue LO is not the
proper forum, but it's proven to us to be faster and more informative.
