as long as the Purpose definition of this list is the same this remains
Crosstalk. Where I am a subscribed--for the purposes Crosstalk represents.
And as long as the list description remains the same, I, at least, expect
no lowly wanton humor from anyone, and especially against CT. No crap.
If you seek to "take pleasure" out of this difficulty, go take it elsewhere.
In fact, take your non-scholarly interests and fancies from some other
place, as well. As long as you stay subscribed, I, as member of this list,
I expect you to respect its purposes, me and all the other members
- yourself including.
Unkind, you said? I am being truly kind to you--if you could see it.
