I echo William P. Williams in his vote for a moderated list.  Any of you
who would like to experience the drudgery of deleting 25 or more
crank, silly, irrelevant, useless messages PER DAY should subscribe to
one of these "open-minded" discussions groups.  After a few days away
from your E-mail, you'll be ready to unsubscribe, providing your
institution hasn't already cut you off for taking up too much space.
The saddest thing about such list is that the annoyance factor
frequently causes the subscriber to miss the really interesting stuff
buried in the sludge, and to flee from lists that could be really
valuable if they weren't so clogged with trivial nonsense.  Go Hardy!

Down with Hardy, long live the new regime.
 
I'm for Hardy, long live Hardy.
 
If these messages look familiar, don't fret, participate,  I'm going to
start a new UNMODERATED list on the discussion about Hardy Cook -- the
myth and the reality.  I am tentatively titling it HARDLYHARDY and it
will be open only to discussions about Hardy Cook's life and his
SHAKSPER dream.  All those who would like to participate in this
UNMODERATED list please email me and I might be able to squeeze you
into my schedule.  You must be admitted to this UNMODERATED list by me
and I will screen every message for content and adjust it where it
seems appropriate.  If there is an unappropriate topic being discussed
(such as Hardy's shoe size, or where he ate lunch) then it will be
censored with the phrase "NOTABOUTHARDY" please respond, as I am
desperate for views on Hardy.

Yes, it seems to me that Hardy does have the responsibility to end a discussion
when it becomes too, too heated. After we cool down, we can go at it again -
maybe.
 
Yours, Bill Godshalk

Oh, yes it does.  I run a list, and I can tell you it puts out precisely
what I believe in, which is according to its charter and rules out the
ad hominem entirely.  I donate my time and my machine, and my
responsibility is strictly to my host for mail, for which pleasure I pay
a fee.
 
I see now and again some sniveling along these wires, mostly from those
who are too young to have experienced the joys of responsibility,
demanding that their voices be sponsored no matter the content (or lack
of it).  I don't have time to play Mister Rogers myself, but I concede
full and complete First Amendment rights to those who do who also are
willing to pony up the requisite funds and force to form their own play
pens.
 
That's freedom of speech in the real world.
