Sri Jaganath had written:

I would like to point out an important fact about this
List, one that has been true from the beginning and
which has been noted in the informatory note about the List.

The Bhakti List is NOT merely _for_ Sri Vaishnavas. As the 
informative note states:

   This is an informal discussion group; consider it 
   a large living room of sorts, welcoming people from all
   backgrounds.  The only assumption is that you consider
   yourself a devotee of the Lord, are inclined towards that
   direction, or are interested in scholarly inquiry in Sri
   Vaishnavism.

This is an important distinction.  In other words the purpose
of the Bhakti List has always been for _discussing_ all aspects 
of Sri Vaishnavism. Such a discussion is open to all people, 
Sri Vaishnavas or otherwise.

Thanking you for your patience,
Mani
