Subscribers-only sounds great...except it appears that some of the
prior posters to this thread are not totally clear on what this means.
*Some* sort of restriction is truly necessary, given the atrocious state of
the S\N ratio in the past few months. What happened to the idea that ExI
members have posting privileges, while non-members can only read? That
idea was very well thought out...I'm all for implementing it. That would
almost totally ensure the lack of ad hominem attacks and flimsy posts such
as the ones occuring recently.
