Given the ease of setting up mail lists using either advertising
supported ones like egroups, or ezmlm or majordomo or mailman or
<insert you favourite> why can't you just create a new list? It's not
that hard.

Given that you want to discuss a specific topic (wireless) it may be
that other members on the auugsa list are not interested in that, but
they can't unsubscribe without potentially missing auug related
