dan, take it easy man.
first off, you're dead wrong, and you know it.

there's no debate going on on the admin list regarding the future and power
of this list or any other for that matter. yes there is a debate, but it's
on a narrow field concerning reaction to one special case and nothing else.

not to mention that there is no backstabbing going on at all.

stop this reference to the discussion behind closed doors. you've
participated in that discussion for three years *and* we are working on
changing it, so work with us, not against us. And stop bitching about your
co-workers in a way that is beneith your inteligence.

you know, while this is not a regulated list, there's no real control as to
what is discussed. Therefor, if someone feels the need to discuss some
specifics, then so be it. There is always the choice to skip a thread,
delete unread. i suggest you use that.

| won't read because, frankly, i've got better shit to do.

good decision.

have a nice week.
