      Dye: I appreciate your input. But there are two types of moderation...
      1. I approve every email sent on the list
      2. I only approve subscriptions.

      The latter is the one I chose. This allows me to disallow/remove irritants like
      Roxanne. I've been in computers for 27 years; I'm no dummy either.
      I just think it's irresponsible to leave this list in this unmoderated
      state, given
      its direction: It's turned into a cesspool of cussing, and newbies that
      are unsophisticated just don't know what to do, except to unsubscribe.

      I've been following the length of the subscription list: it's been shrinking.
      So, do you really expect that people will put up with this cussing for long?

      No. I disagree with you on the solution. Yep, people *are* lazy, and don't read
      the instructions. Nope, they shouldn't have to. Yep *some* people don't care.
      BUT, *SOME* are offended (witness the desubscription process: the list
      *is* shrinking)

      So, if you're all for 5 or 10 people, and Roxanne cussing at them as your idea
      of a list, then stay on, and enjoy!
