As you've probably noticed, the "ten year" rule is often bent. If the topic
is good enough, bending it is permitted/encouraged.

I just changed the Welcome file which gets sent out to new members (the main
difference is that the "This list is going away!" notice at the beginning
went away). It doesn't actually encourage people to bend the "ten year"
rule, but it does list some circumstances where it might be bent. It's an
implicit encouragement. (Basically, topics are so wide-ranging that you
could say the list has a double standard.)

Did you get the new file?
