Louis: Dr. Burford, do you have a distant relative that was a squid? The
kind of ink-fog you are generating beggars description. An "unmoderated"
list with a volume limit? This is exactly what M-I is supposed to be, at
least for the time being. The unmoderated list is just the place we need,
on the other hand, that will accomodate Rolf Martens 14 times a
day re-posting of Chinese CP documents from 30 years ago. Why suffocate
this kind of creativity? You yourself are cut out for the new unmoderated
list. You will be able to commune with such rare spirits as Shawgi Tell,
Rolf Martens, etc. to your heart's delight.
