I believe that the webmasters list is okay for discussion about issues with the
website.  I was asking the users on discuss if anyone else was experiencing the
same problem as I was, since the discuss list has a larger audience of
non-webmasters than the webmasters list does.  I was looking for the user
perspective.  :)

Quite true.  For me, I was happy to live with the current site the way it is
until I showed someone the site recently and ran into the problem described in
my previous email.   I thought about it from the perpspective of a new user and
felt as though, if I were a new user, some of the things on the site might not
be readily apparent/intuitive.  It's not so much a matter of not wanting to say
anything as not realizing something needed to be said until I looked at it from
another perspective.

I do this excercise (thinking about it as a new user) with Gorm and other apps
all of the time, I just never really turned my attention to the website.  

Later, GJC
