I guess I'd like to give a chance before calling in the undertaker.  Per 
mentioned a while back that this list got off to a slow start and the he 
posted most of the messages at first.   Even if it is readily available to 
people who frequent the CS comics forum, I wonder how many Disney comics 
fans even look there?  I long ago gave up in *any* generic comics 
forum/newsgroup/conference as supur heros were the only thing discussed 
there.  I wouldn't have found out about the Disney forum if James hadn't 
posted a message here.

With Don complaining about paying to have his words echoed back at him 
multiple times, I'm sure he wouldn't want to pay again to read what he 
wrote on compuserve...  :)

I saw your posts and replied to one (though I know you are trying to get 
others to reply).  As I said above, it may take some time for the word to 
get out to Disney comics fans that the forum is there.  It was a fluke that 
I found out about this list (from a cross posting on RIME's Disney 
conference) and it will take a lot of flukes for other Dc fans to get the 
word.  I think we are just too spread out and disconnected in the US--like 
rubber rafts adrift in a sea of superhero worshipers...
