I'm not for censorship of someones thoughts or their ability to speak
their mind, if they so desire. I do think that there should be another
place, within our community, that such discussions should take place.
SATLUG-ETC would keep those of us in -our- community talking to others
in -our- community, and wouldn't pollute this list with what others
would deem to be off-topic diatribe in the regular SATLUG mailing list.
How hard could it be, in Mailman, to (re)create a new list?
(*chuckle*) Don't we have enough Linux 'experts' that could figure that
one out? ;-)
