[REBOL] Re: Altme: how to find groups

IMHO: Daril's comments are right on the mark -
both the critical and the positive.
I found myself a bit vexed that Carl posted a
message to this ML about 'why this list has been
so quiet' (sic), but did not give clear instructions
as to how to use Altme.
At least I didn't see them, and had to post several
queries to this list to resolve that matter. I gather
from other postings that others may have felt the
I hope both this ML and altme will flourish.
However, I have 'bragged up' rebol to anyone who
will listen and have urged other programmers,
including my business partner to use it, and I
think many of those would prefer the ML approach.
