As someone who has taken others to task on this list, and commonly uses
sarcastic criticism to voice my own opinion, I applaud you John.
This mailing list should not be censored in any way from my point of view.
It should not be a socio-political haven for anyone. This is purely an
electronic means of communication for a group of peers with a common
interest. There has to be room for dissent and personal ( sometimes
passionate ) opinion. As Rob reminds all of us from time to time, if this is
to be considered an auditorium full of 1000 people with one person at the
mic -- then I suggest that occasionally some might not enjoy or agree with a
particular opinion... if so, I would further suggest they are free to leave
the discussion ( shut down the window and hit "next thread").
I think there's a fairly smart bunch of people who read this list. It's
obvious from what posts get responded to and which ones don't -- what
people are thinking.
Let them decide.
