Hello Everyone, Some of you will undoubtedly not recognise my name, this is because I am a complete lurker. I have no ongoing projects to report, my main interest in this list is to build up my hobby-level interest in electronics and to see what other CBM'ers are doing. In short, I will generally not have anything to contribute to the list, as some of the discussions are way over my head. However, the discussion of what is or is not on-topic drew my attention. 18 Emails discussing the nature of the list and debating whether a smaller number of other posts are on topic and/or suggesting a new list be created, is a bit much. So at the risk of posting yet another (admittedly) off-topic post, I would like to point out two important facts that seem to have been forgotten. List membership is a voluntary thing. Nobody forces anyone to be a member of the list, nor does anybody force anyone to read every bit of Email that makes it across the list. As Ojala Pasi has pointed out, a lot of people are underestimating the versatility of a delete key (or equivalent key combo). Secondly, as has been thoroughly pointed out, this list is for technical discussions relating to CBM computers/peripherals... Perhaps a new list for debating whether posts are on or off topic would be a better use of a new mailinglist. ;) I'm going back to my hiding spot now that I've made my rant. Please, if you wish to critique my post send me *private* email. Thank you. Rich PS. You rock, Jeri! - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
