Don't get me wrong - I really don't care about this issue. I probably only bothered
to reply because of the anonymous invitation to join another version of this list.
I've seen other lists split - it results in fragmentation, cross-posting and
confusion, and is usually just a form of kingdom-building thinly disguised as
indignation over some technical aspect of the list. Please note - I'm not
suggesting that you or anyone else in particular is behind it or that you're not
strictly on the level. I just that I think it's a bad idea, so I start to question
peoples motives when I believe they're acting inordinately upset.
