I agree fully...  Once people like Steve and others drop off the list due
to the noise level, the list and all it's subscribers are the losers.

While an official moderator of the 78-c list, I tried to reign in the
abusers, but the noise won out... some people seem to have entirely too
much time on their hands, whereas I and certainly many others do not.

Much more of the drek that has polluted this list over the past few weeks
and I'm gone too!
