I think you are making a gross assumption.
There is a vast difference between people who are 'interested in
bells' and those who are willing and able to contribute to a list
such as this. The fact that the majority of those who subscribe to
other bell ringing related lists do not subscribe to this one does
not necessarily imply a lack of interest in bell history, merely a
lack interest in contributing to the subject.
