If you've never gotten on an "enemy" mailing list just to check them out,
that's fine. But condemning other for possibly doing so seems like a heartfelt,
but possibly misplaced, reaction. I make a point to read things by people with
"pooposing" (opposing) views.

I do see some of what might be your problem with what PoC says:

Now, that might seem sufficiently critical of David Duke; I mean, in a sense,
that's what Duke and Führer-would-bes everywhere _are_ doing, "designing [their] own".

But I'd call PoC's comment, at the least, praising with faint damns.

OTOH, what he was observing was probably not all that was there. "WWW" might have been,
on that list, the only visible part of the ugly iceberg.
