I too, enjoy occasional off-topic discussions here--music, humor,etc.
However IMHO, certain subjects are much too infamatory--religion &
politics. We need to maintain a very high siginal:noise ratio in
deference to those who use this forum for technical purposes only.
Sorting out the spam every morning is hard enough without making this
listserver part of the problem.

Many of you have
suggested we take these topics elsewhere and now we can. If you are
interested in a very broad spectrum of topics to challenge the mind, I
invite you to subscribe to the private professional’s listservices freespeech(--nospam--at)structuralist.net

and instructions are provided. E-mail me directly if you have any
trouble with the subscription process or wonder if a topic is
appropriate for the list.
This list is for
intelligent discussions unrelated to code or methodology. Politics,
religion, Outsourcing, Protectionism and almost anything you can think
of is allowed. What is not allowed are direct hit and run tactics. If
you wish to debate a topic – provide facts, links and intelligent
commentary (provide references and remember to quote sources when
quoting). Above all – keep your temper in control and consider the
rules of debate to be in forced. If I feel someone has stepped out of
line – I’ll issue a warning. Only one warning per customer and then it
is two weeks of time out. After this you may again participate. The
second offense you’re off the list. No three strikes program here!.
Have fun and enjoy the
