Hell, no. This list and others like it are the shared coffee lounges
oftoday. We gather to chat about 'stuff' with a high probability that
said 'stuff' will be of approximately greater than zero interest to most
of the friends gathering around this particular coffee table. I'm on
about a dozen mail lists and all of them include a lot of 'noise' - but
the noise is an important part of the community experience. Sometimes it
gets a bit much and somebody ahs to try to shout for order, but
normally it's self regulating; after all we are all wanting to talk
about the nominal subject or we wouldn't be here!
