2nd Call: HGN internet medium usage priority
Only ten reponses for the first call of internet's media preference survey. I
modify the options to exhaust the possibilities that I can think of. The new
2nd call is listed in the following paragraph:
>This is a HGN internet's media utilisation survey. Please give me your
>in a one line statement, with your most favorite internet's medium first,
>firstname.lastname@example.org n t f mu
>where email@example.com is my email address which shall be replaced by yours,
> n is the newsgroup that we are going to form in the future,
sub-set of n could be nm (moderated newsgroup) &
nu (unmoderated newsgroup).
> t is the current Teoh's manual moderated mails handling method,
> f is the Hakka Forums by Thread provided by SL Lee,
> mu is the UNMODERATED automatic mailing list that I will try to
> solicite a free service from the internet.
mm is the moderated automatic mailing list
>Mail the above one line statement to me at:
>The current t and f systems may sometimes create confusion or unnecessary

The articles in newsgroup are threaded properly. When there is something
of interest to you can save it (them) or mail it (them) to your
email box for future references selectively by articles or by the whole thread.
Right now the threading in firstname.lastname@example.org showing too many
articles with similar subjects. It is very difficult to follow-up the
discussion threads properly. However, the advantage is that you do not
need a news server to read the articles.
This survey was requested by Teoh about a month ago. I have solicited a
free auto-mailing list service provider from one our member. Teoh can still be
the administrator, whether moderated or unmoderated, and the provider will
handle the technical aspect of it. In the auto-mailing
list service, members can join and leave the list automatically without
tedious human editing.
The newsgroup options would be more sensible if the size of the member list
got up to 800 or so. The main advantage of this is that you do not need to
keep any storage at all if you do not intend to keep the posted articles.
>Please limited to the above 4 + 2 choices only. If you have other great
ideas, >please post separately.
