Frankly, I hate to see this, simply because I think
a large part of the value of this list is its diversity,
size, and breadth. As I've mentioned on list before,
a thick skin shouldn't be required to participate
in this list effectively.

I think it'd be a good idea for everyone--myself included--
to think about the quoted message above _before_
clicking Send.
