I'm looking for opinions on this. It will probably fix an irritating

issue to discuss about this, please post to the list. If it's just a
simply Restrict/Do not restrict opinion, please send to me off-line.

BTW, interestingly, I found the anon postings about list-relevant topics
more objectionable than the spam. Spam I delete, but the other ones
really bother me.

My preference is to leave the list open. I have been on the list for several

If a message is annoying, I have a delete key. The bandwidth they take up is
minor compared to the total volume of the list. Finally, restricting the list
just somehow feels wrong.

My $0.02.
