I have never said the first word about killing any mailing list. I put
up a forum so users would have a singe place to post to, and not have
to post to the first forum they ran into that had a Wine section in

Anyone here can go to any Linux related forum and find post in them
about Wine.... Wine users asking questions to others who may or may
not be interested in Wine in the slightest way.

I have personally seen people post and ask a question regarding Wine
and others have tried there best to steer them away from Wine and the
*EVIL* M$ platform software....

With answers like, if you run a game in Wine *you* are only hurting
Linux as this removes incentive for game developers to port to Linux.

Or scaring people with the notion a virus could take down there system
or turn it into a spam bot!

So that I'm clear, I will repeat myself and say........ I *don't*
intend to kill the users mailing list. I do however intend to kill the
fact that people didn't have a Wine centric forum to post in, until
this morning anyway.

If you want to join the forum that is totally your prerogative, its
open to the public.
