This group has been founded to gather people who uses internet ,that is
stakeholders irrespective of their educational or vocational background,
hence it will be indeed selfish to mention money. It is not really too much
to ask students to use their university mail. Personally I will not mind to
use it. The only thing that I find not nice is that the rule is being
forced on us.

Different members will have different levels of interest on different
topics, hence you can't really force participation in this list. If someone
has subscribed to this list ,it is because they are already interested for
the quest but if they are dormant for too long after subscribing then I
agree it is better to drop the load.

If university students are being forced to use their uni mail, people
working should use their employer provided mail address since they are also
learning from the mailing list. do you agree ?
