I agree, and if it doesn't satisfy dust fuzzy group owners then oh well. You can't find a much better site to run your group on other than this one. Especially with everything being very accessible, and plus having a guru to discuss things with the developer/owner of the site. I don't think anybody besides Mark Fletcher, could do anything like this. He definitely has a lot of patience.

Which is a perfectly reasonable, preferable I'd say, alternative to a broadcast message.  That way no one but someone who might be directly affected/confused by a previously unexplained outage would have the information about what's going on.  This is directly parallel to the "dead in the water page with the kitten(s)" that I get when the site is down for whatever reason when you try to access the web interface.

This should satisfy fussy group owners, too.

You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.
