I don't have any frustration or anger. I just state my opinion. I'm glad you 
value it highly.

I have to disagree. If any political or otherwise "potentially hurtful" 
content would have to be stripped from all the mailing lists archives the 
n00bs wouldn't be left with a lot of good advice. It's a useless discussion 
and laying the n00b ruler next to it will only make things worse. We've never 
ever censored anything, and I doubt we ever will in the near future (let's 
call that a definate NO). You should rethink what you're asking for.

It's not about who contributed what at all in this discussion.
