I'd like if the list remained socially liberal and members consider
others before they post or reply to the list.

Today I received 18 email messages from the list, including 2 job
postings and 1 relevant response - that's a 5:1 cruft:quality ratio!  I
appreciate list members that follow the charter, but I would be silently
grateful to those wishing to complain that respond directly to the
writer.  Few seem to realize how many people receive emails when they
reply to this list.

Please exercise common courtesy and reserve the mailing list for
pertinent emails (e.g. job postings, resumes, and messages like Paul
Robinson's original response).
