Let's not get into a flame war. The issue has been discussed on this list
for a long time, and on other listservs as long as I can remember. The way
the current list is set up is the default on most listserv software, and
this is the way this list has been operated for quite a while.
If the list admin wants to elicit a vote, maybe we can resolve the
controversy until someone brigs it up again next year.
