John,

I would propose that folks use mail filters such as procmail. Its much
cheeper and there is no overhead. If this list was moderated, and merrit
has said that it would not be, how could we trust our moderator? If
geo.net moderated the list I bet we would never see a bad word about you
guys ;-)

Lost of folks believe in open discussions. Just be conservative in what
you send and liberal in what you recieve.
