Me too.  I'm not sure I see the point of it: might as well be a 
webzine that we go to if we want to / or just whatever current
material members of the list wish to post.

Is this a confluence of spaces? Is an alternative space being created?
A more "valid", even "authentic" space? Do the Readers give a text
integrity? Somehow there seems to be an irreconcilable contradiction
between list discourse and editorial stasis. And then, rejection on 
board, the failed poet - free will in hand - can take to the
cyberwaves and post anyway, (no hard feelings, head held high, better
luck next time, "stupid idea anyway" etc). Why bother getting it
"judged" in the first place? Who cares if it carries the stamp of
approval? I have major problems with this concept.
