What we can't do, from this list, is make cultural, social, organizational

statement not entirely convinced that it is correct. I'd love to hear some
counter-examples. My jaded view (old fart alert) led me to generalize this
view to all of the activity that goes on on our forum.
I'm not sure. Change at a gross level takes time and sustained effort, from
large groups of people. I believe that a mailing list can reach, and even
motivate, large groups of people, and can be used as a catalyst for change.
Major changes of the kind you speak of are so vanishingly rare, that it
becomes hard to generalize. I suspect, however, that it is quite possible.
