I really didn't want to come off as an arse toward Jim--I always enjoy his
posts in fact. And, it *is* in fact interesting what Jim, or others on the
list, find interesting. Sure, some of your topics might be interesting to
me, some not.

I just wasn't sure what purpose a 'survey' of what topics people
find deletable would serve. As some have noted, it seems to be one step
away from "don't bother to post on such and such a topic because people
will probably ignore it."

But, for all that, the concept of being deletable is an interesting one.
What if it were reversed: what topics would you find absolutely

"Them That Cannot Be Deleted!"

If we could establish *that* we could please all the people all the time

(BTW, I like to delete FrameMaker stuff lately, because I don't own
FrameMaker. But someday
I might--so I hope people continue to talk about it...)
