I never said anyone had a RIGHT to anything. Not even in my full
original posting.

My point is -


And with freedom, total freedom

- not restricted freedom, or freedom in a bubble, or freedom as
granted by the powers that be -


RISK! (PolySci 101)

Yea, I hate the net-noise also. But, I am willing to sift through the
chaff to find the wheat.

Now that I have disagreed with you, would you propose to have me
"bad-filed" (blackballed) from this list? - Nothing personal, just an
example -

Point: Once the excluding begins, it never ends.

This list enjoys an extremely diverse and active membership. I
believe it is the unfettered freedom of the participants, registered
or not, that contributes to this list's success.

I understand the bandwidth problems, server problems, net-noise

These problems won't be solved by building walls.
