pretty sure the "w/o snipping anything" aspect is because most of us run
Gmail which threads nicely :)

Personally, I think the group being a 501(c)(3) is pretty cool - though I've
never counted any of the donations I've given in the past.

I have no preference on what TriLUG decides to do - I'll keep participating
whether we're loosely affiliated, a non-profit corporation, or a for-profit
