Yeah, I know, it's a slippery slope. But I still think the list needs a little oversight. And the problem with the delete key is that, in digest mode, it's all or nothing. Three or four OT posts on the same lame topic, fine--I'm happy to scroll past and get on to something useful. But this is consuming over half the bandwidth. It's too much. And in acknowledgement of my contribution to the problem, this will be my last post on Bill. At least, this week.

If I left that impression, I am sorry for it. I don't assume anything of the sort; my comment was based on observation of the responses on the List.
I'm not running for anything, least of all List Police, so while I appreciate the idea of your voting for me, don't worry about it.
One last comment: the two most interesting things on yesterday's digest were someone's autoresponse to Paul Feather's very polite request to turn off his autoresponse; and the beaver dam story. Pretty pathetic for a list like this. No offense intended to those few who actually did engage in technical discussion; you've obviously bested me thus far.
