You make a very good point and I think that is part of the problem.  Most
members have their setting as "no email" so if they don't check in they
won't see what is going on.

When the tirades take off those people just stop checking in so the 314
members is down to just a few actual people.

I assumed from his message that he wasn't planning on contributing
anymore.  I suppose whether or not he unsubscribes is secondary to
whether or not he participates, since I hardly count inactive members
when evaluating the group's success.
