Hi Jeffrey,

why should anyone defend the above. The point is, your ranting will not
change anything, not now, not ever.

what difference does it make as to the determinants of this list?

why do you continue your rant?

So what. Do you think it is going to change all of the Suse lists, and
millions of email successfully passing through these lists on any given day.

What I am seeing so far is someone on a rant. I suggest you really read the
archives where this has been discussed ad nauseam over the years, many times.

Why, do you have that much time to waste as to harp on such a mundane issue?
Why do you think anyone has to defend "this policy?" This is the way it is,
it will not change, nor will you change it for this list, or any EZMLM
driven mail list. You have two choices, we all have choices, either change
email clients or find another list to your liking.
