As I understand it; Spoon is a group of people who got together to run a
number of email lists with the help of computer space at Jefferson
Village. Whether they have a constitution or not is their business not
ours. We are their guests on this list and we should put forward our
constructive views to the members of Spoon, but not forget that it is
*their* list. I would get pretty pissed off if someone tried to interfere
in my work without any real knowledge  of it. If you want a list with a
constitution.....start one up, and run it the way you think it should be

Best wishes,
