Of course it is different from Walter. Walter tries to turn every mailing 
list he is on into the son of Cubanews.

Actually, I have written to Brian Shannon, Sartesian (when he was here) and 
numerous other list members reminding them when they were going over 5 
posts a day, which is our informal limit. Doug Henwood does the same thing 
on LBO-Talk, except he asks people to stick to 3 a day. You are reading far 
too much into this. I am not trying to censor Walter. I far prefer 
answering him politically. But I also have moderator obligations to 
perform, which include asking people to clip extraneous text, avoid 
one-liners, etc.
