I too am one of us and find myself agreeing with James.  We certainly wouldn't 
looking for clients there because, well, their wouldn't be any!  I just can't
imagine what we would 'talk' about that can't be covered here on Midrange-L. 
most of the good answers come from users anyway! :-)  I imagine a list where the
answer to every question is somebody's product.  Ugh!
