You could also meet on IRC and even use one time call bridge

AFAIK you can invite RRSAgent any time to #social IRC channel and it
will log the conversation

Henry, I can understand your frustration but also please understand that
Tantek, Aaron and other IndieWeb folks find mailing lists unproductive
and draining energy. IMO we don't have 20 but just 4 official channels:
mailing-list, wiki, IRC, tracker + telecons which gives us enough
flexibility to not force others to do something they really don't want
to do. And I know that you use IRC anyways :)

BTW on #indiewebcamp IRC i see Postel's law mentioned pretty often
"Be conservative in what you send, be liberal in what you accept"
