Or, you might:

1) Take longer than a week to forge your opinion.

2) Consider the list represents people of all sorts
who are, in turn, representative of the population at

3) You might suck it up or dismiss such mail ... I
mean, it's an e-mail list on the Web, how seriously do
you need to take this stuff?

Seriously, you take a hit or two from one or two
people and then unsubscribe or start a flame war?

I mean, at the office, if two people have negative
things to say about your docs or opinions, do you
quit? (Okay, if your company only employs 3 people,
maybe ....)

There are other, positive, non-negative,
community-friendly (dare I say more ?mature? or
?Web-savvy?) approaches. No flames needed, btw, this
is my humble opinion and I respect that yours differ,
even if you are wrong. <g>
