I don't know whether we'll need to go down that route just yet, I'll be
keeping an extra close eye on list traffic in the next couple of weeks
and hope to head off any OT posts before they escalate. 

But as a friendly reminder people; this is a *worldwide* (not just the
U.S.A) list for web development, please stay on topic. We have a list for
anything not web development at

I'm CC'ing the sysadmin list in on this and we'll see what the other
admins think about the filter idea.
