The Foundation list summary looks good.

The success of a communications strategy depends not only on the 
information being posted, but on people taking the time and 
responsibility to read it.  One of the reasons for this reading failure 
is the sheer volume of messages that are issued.  So, at least rating 
the significance of the messages would be important.  A Board statement 
about a newly adopted policy would have a very high rating.  Yet another 
person's complaint about being blocked would have a very low one.  
Putting numerical ratings on each message would help those with limited 
time to choose which ones to read first.

If the information has been there and easily accessible for a reasonable 
time there is no valid excuse for not being informed.
