TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Eric runs a good list, with less flaming and far fewer off-topic posts than
most other lists I'm on, and is to be congratulated on it. Also, in general
we should all support him in his efforts to keep it that way.
That said, lets not go overboard. Satire, blunt speaking and even passion
all have legitimate roles in debate.

I am not here to live up to your expectations.
Intelligent adults do fight about intellectual issues and about issues of
taste and style. Sometimes some of the discussion may get quite heated.
If you cannot cope with that, please go away.
There is no excuse whatsoever to consider imposing the standards of a
grade 8 class here, than heaven.
