Hateful few

Gents and gals,

I am a very recent subscriber of this list, as I am an old subscriber of the 
QRP-L, the G-QRP-L and other radio related lists and, of course, of some 
other lists related to my profession.

I am a member of quite a lot of international radio organizations, but not 
AMSAT so far. I have joined this list thinking that it was an open one...

However, reading things like...

>Perhaps you should unsubscribe now, this reflector is paid for by AMSAT.

>if you've let your membership lapse, then you should
>clear off the reflector, and leave it free for the rest of us who don't
>jump ship at the first sign of bad weather

make me feel that newcomers like me are not welcome, and that this is a 
reflector were the subscribers opinion is something to keep to themselves. I 
have never seen this in the other lists that I subscribe, and I would never 
feel comfortable here. This has been my first and last contribution for the 
list, and I will unsubcribe. 

However, gents and gals, please note that this does not seem to be the very 
best way of gathering membership.

No bad feellings, I really wish AMSAT and this list a lot of prosperity and
