Went away for 3 weeks, so unsubbed, came back, the list is still in moron

Name calling, post after post about posts about namecalling, what happened
with you people? Keeping a list alive and healthy is hard work, and it is
so easy to ruin. You're succeeding nicely so far.

Each worsening of list atmosphere drives away content carriers, usually
irreversibly. It's a positive autofeedback process, so don't allow it to
start. Please.

I don't have anything else to say, so I'm following my own advice and shut
my mouth.
