CRITICS-L list as Google Group?

Dear friends,

I have doubts about Google groups for the CRITICS-L list because as far 
as I know that presupposes that we need to use and communicate with our 
gmail accounts, and I don't like to work with an account that requires 
entering the web, and prefer to use a POP account (and e.g. Thunderbird 
as mail program) as do most people who use their university e-mail address.

So, so far Jerry's proposal stands, but I think it is fair and wise to 
wait for other proposals. My main criterion is that once the CRITICS-L 
list is housed elsewhere, it will have many years of continuity, which 
requires a dedicated convenor, specialized in CDA, and a practical list 

Alternatively, we could also ask LINGUIST to house us, parallel with the 
DISCOURS list, but that would be an open - and hence possibly very large 
- list to manage.

We'll keep thinking and talking about this.
