Re your comment below:

"I'm not disputing the success or value of the group
-- clearly not, or why would I bother making an intended-to-be-productive suggestion? It wasn't intended to provoke the defensiveness that it seems to have."

I'm sorry if anything I said sounded defensive. If the format changes, I'll go along with it. And, whether most members agreed with you or not, I'm sure they appreciated that your suggestions were meant, not as a criticism of the group, but as a way of improving the group.

That said, the reason I don't get a sense that people are dissatisfied with keeping the status more or less quo is because all the responses your suggestion generated were unenthusiastic, and it's reasonable to presume that anyone who failed to offer an opinion either generally likes the current system, or at least doesn't dislike it enough to regard a major change as being warranted.
