Cryonics membership

Considering the origins of transhumanism, cryonics membership is a 
significant factor. Is there are reason to revert the addition of this 
information about the people in the list? To be sure, the information is 
not complete, but that's a work in progress. Keith Henson 13:24, 11 April

     This isn't appropriate information for an encyclopedic list.

     Furthermore, in light of the fact that cryonics is a pseudo-science 
and pseudo-technology that undermines the credibility of anyone associated 
with it, whether it be the provider or the client, transhumanists would be 
wise to keep their cryonics membership private... --Loremaster 13:31, 11

*IF* people think cryonics status on the transhumanist list is a good idea, 
reverting only requires going to the last version with the changes under 
history, bringing up the editor and saving.  If you consider yourself a 
transhumanist, you might so remark in the comments on the reversion.  I 
really wonder how many are signed up?
