I think LAU is great, and I certainly wouldn't unsubscribe just
because there is another list with a smaller focus.

I have found in the past, though, that "Look what I made!" posts get
ignored.  Or at least it looks like that.  I'm sure people listen and
have opinions, but don't actually take the time to write them down for
everyone else to read.

A place to post where you *know* people will give useful critisism
will hopefully get more people to open up and put their creations in
the public eye (ear?).

It could also fail miserably and just be a silent ghost-town of a
list.  Whatever happens, trying it can't hurt.
