[Users] Is this really a list for users, or rather for programmers?

Yes. Also, this whole thread is an attempt to mountainize a molehill. I
just checked, and the first post of this thread was, from my archives,
the Original Poster's (OP's) first post to this mailing list, and he
said he was "interested in Claws", not that he was using Claws. And
then he threatened to leave this list. Many of us have been using
Claws for years, some of us (not me) have been coding Claws. When a
noob comes on and tells us how to do our business, and tells us to
split our mailing list, why reply at all?

I'm just as happy with the list now as I was before the OP made his
drive-by suggestion: No changes needed.
