I agree completely, I have been subscribed to this list since version 5.3... and
the list has always maintained it community like spirit.IMO this is another great
advantage of SuSE... the tolerance of people discussing what they want, it lends
itself to the close knit community without having to be worried about getting
flamed to death because someone asks an obivious question. (As I've heard takes
place on other linux lists)
I really dont think this is a high traffice list, it does about 100 messages a day
and for the most part they are usually informative to some degree (depending on
where one is at, at the time). I'd say it all comes down to free speach, everyone
here has the rite to post what they want, and usually the bs posts just get
ignored, while the core discussions carry on.

On a side note, I will say one thing that is a small problem is exact duplicate
messages. I suspect this due to sending the mail with kmail. It might help if
people check their mouse setting in K. The single click sometimes is too fast and I
guess the message gets fired off twice. You can see this with messages sent by the
same person at exactly the same time.

even still, I can deal with that

have fun
