RE: Bill Polhemus

While I try to be tolerant of occasional off-topic posts (and I
sometimes even contribute!), I agree that limits have to be set when
someone cannot seem to control their off-topic postings or are insulting
to other list members.  I do not agree that "pressing the delete key"
should be the only option when such postings become excessive. 
But rather than posting your opinions here, if you feel that a list
member is abusing their privileges on the listserver, I recommend
sending an email with your concerns directly to the list administrator


Depending upon the number of complaints, the administrator can then
determine whether action needs to be taken.

	I second that.  For this list to remain a viable forum for
engineering discussion, there must be some kind of a 	limit for "off
topic" posts.

	I would say that insulting the wives of dead war veterans would
more than cross that line.

	I challenge everyone to CEASE responding to any current
off-topic threads.  Those of you that can't are a poor 	example of

	That's been clear for a long time, Bill.

	I think it's time for you to go away.  So, apparently, do most
of the other participants here.

	Shafat, please, please, remove this clown from our List so we
can go back to talking about engineering.
