The list is a far more valid sampling of those that choose to participate than a face to face meeting.

> Every member gets the emails on the members list, they CHOOSE to comment or not to comment, and leaving the discussion to a face to face meeting disenfranchises those who cannot be at such a meeting due to financial or other constraints.  Hence, I would rather encourage all members to have their voice heard where is can reach the entire member base, rather than an extremely small minority.
