While we consider switching to a moderated list, Greg Burch (VP of Extropy Institute) and I agree that something needs to be done about the falling signal to noise ratio and the persisting dominance of postings about a topic (guns) that inflames responses and relates only peripherally to the purposes of this list.

Since Greg is more actively involved with the list than am I at this time, he will announce our ruling to curb this problem. I stand behind his statements and his judgement completely. Greg has the power to suspend from the list those who ignore his ruling.

So watch out for the ruling!

Please, let's move the list back towards the productive, cutting edge forum it has been for most of the last seven years.
