Am I the only one here who is sick of having their mail box filled with off-topic posts? If I go to the Zompist board, I expect to find the ephemera section filled with irrelevant postings, frequently ill-informed, and often offensive. If I don't like it, I don't have to read it. But the contents of a mailing list come whether I want them or not; that's why we have the "no cross, no crown" rule, and why we have moderation. Where is our benevolent dictator when we need him?
