Subject: RE: List Administration ...

I agree with you that the profanity was clearly out of line, but there seems
to be a lot of frustration building over the number of messages being pumped
out by the listserver, which is prompting many to become frustrated and
desiring to opt out. Indeed, one gentleman at the recent meeting in Brussels
referred to this process as bordering on SPAM, and particularly problematic
for those who travel a great deal and therefore forced to use slow links...
especially when the mail includes attachements.

My question is why listserver is being used as the chosen vehicle for
communication? IOW, has anyone considered replacing this with a discussion
server? That would not only provide a message tree structure for
reconstructing the history of a particular thread, but would be a pull, as
opposed to a push method, of communication, which would be far more
practical insofar as it would allow the end user to control the message

Mr. Smith,

I highly resent your posting this message directly to the list.  
This is NOT an appropriate forum to use this type of juvenile, crass

An apology to the list IS in order.
