I plead _some_ indulgence on Ian's behalf, expecting and hoping that
this is an exceptional situation.  California Colo was a much-respected
local non-profit venture, and its sudden collapse left many worthwhile
hosted projects in the lurch.  SFCCP probably needs to get the word out
quickly, to be successful.  And this is (one hopes) a one-time

Behind the scenes, as mail admin for some Bay Area groups, I saw Ian
very politely ask if/where/how he should post.  (Of course, you wouldn't
have seen that.)

If this sort of thing happened repeatedly, it'd definitely be a problem,
but I'd cut Ian slack on this one time.
