Good filters. :) There's also the seeming paradox that the most activity
comes from the people with the most time to spare, not the people who
send a few high-Q posts, such as (to name three) Eric Watt Forste, Steve
Witham, and Robin H.

Some do, some don't. It's an open list, not a closed club. Consequently
the SNRR is kind of, umm, well, mediocre or worse at times. Some good
people get dragged into time-wasting arguments around here. Consequently
*they* aren't perceived to be shining at their true luminosity, either.

Ouch. I'm guilty, I'm trying to not fall for every troll, but it's hard,
and I need more practice.

Hey, if you feel you have to tar every member of the list because there
are some bozos, go ahead, but please recognize that's what you're doing.
OK? :)Suggestions have been made for several ways to improve the SNRR,
but nothing has been done, because the list is run by King Log, not King
Stork. I dislike it, too. I'm getting better filters. And I don't like
having to.
