H-Net has moved to a system called 'Commons' which essentially requires
you to visit the web page and login to leave a comment like on a blog. 
The comments are then distributed as digests after an interval.  To
respond, you have, it seems, to visit the website and respond there.  I
find this inordinately frustrating.  I barely bother now to use H-Net.  It
was much more convenient to send the message to the list server, have it
moderated, and distributed as a separate message to all list-members.

BTW, I use neither Google nor Facebook - not FBd, as they say.  They are
both tax avoiders from UK taxes.
