Absolutely, Levente - this discussion is about the use of the mailing
list, not personal stuff.

I think you hit the nail on the proverbial head, so to speak, in your last
missive. Commercial usage of this mailing list is way off topic, in my
opinion. It makes me sick seeing the amount of duplication of effort in
the commercial world, and that's one of the many reasons for my return to
academia. Open Source type ethics were taken for granted on this list for
years without needing to be formally stated. I sincerely hope the content
here reverts to that style.
