Re: [PhillyPUG] Yahoo list vs. Meetup list

We can definitely look at retiring the old Yahoo list now that the
Meetup list has critical mass.  We're at 75 members on the Meetup list
added in the last 10 months, whereas the Yahoo list has a total of 126
members accumulated over the last 5 years.

The only issue with using Meetup as the mailing list member repository
is vendor lock-in, since I know of no way to extract a list of member
email addresses in the event that we wanted to move to a different
service in the future.
