Actually no... it's more a matter of learning what's delivered
tongue-in-cheek and what's serious criticism or ranting.
Having postings to this list go through an editing process before
they post is a bad idea. who's gonna do it, and what's the criteria
for their authorization to do such? Censoring the list isn't gonna
There are several people in here who tend to be a bit outspoken (oh
