I too miss the activity. Its hard to get enthusiastic about posting 
something when the response is a resounding silence. I did notice that 
the decline in listserv activity almost paralleled the rise of Facebook. 
The Johnny Winter "guitar slinger" listserv went down really fast.

I too miss Chuck Nevitt. He could be thick headed sometimes but his 
heart was in the right place.

I miss Blues-L because you could keep up on who was touring, where the gigs were, etc. But apparently, there are now fewer gigs and very few tours. And I miss Chuck Nevitt.
