Good for you! I love this list just as it is.

> your further information, even Rootsweb is now going to commercial
> taglines on nearly all its lists, unless the listowner -pays- for the
> privilege of not having them.
> This list was created to give those of us searching in the Slovak
> Republics/Hungary area a place/list to use without constant threads on
> chicken soup and home remedies that often pop up on certain other Slovak
> lists. Traditions -can- be a part of a genealogy search, but unless the
> question directly relates to genealogy (for example a Saints Name Day or
> naming patterns or some historical event) then its off topic and not to
> be posted to this list.
> This is clearly spelled out in the Welcome Message you recieve when you
> join this list, so no one can say they didn't know about it.
> Again, if you're not happy with that, you may be happier on another list
> where people don't mind wading through the off topic posts to find
> something related to genealogy.
> I now consider this the end of this discussion. If you care to respond,
> please do so to me privately, not to the list.
