I have posted three or four prank notes written in Maoist jargon
circa 1975. The wit was not there, yet I have to say it was fun
to write. At least a couple of you took it quite seriously.
This is unfortunately not surprising. But I am ending the run.
The reason has little to do with the joke itself, such as it was,
which seems to be pretty appropriate to the list now. Rather, I
don't want to contribute to an environment which is already being
permeated by messages sent by people who are playing games with
It might be interesting if someone gathered up all the messges
from "veronica" et al. list-members have received. I bet a
peculiar profile would turn up.
Hell, I'm going off to M2 now, and will only post the most deadly
serious things evermore.
