I definitely find this a misstep. There remain members who do not  
deal with the internet. You have simply written them off with this  
action. How much does it cost for each member to have a printed  
directory? If you can figure that out, then raise the dues just that  

With all those hackers busily outing everything everywhere, how safe  
is any information?
