Its just a number I pulled out of the air. We have at least two web based
forums, and a.f.c., and I suppose the dead-ish RCS list.

This is what bugs me. What about plain old manners? Good sense? How about
all of the people on the list that might be annoyed at modern Linux and
Windows (or whatever) talk? I can't be the only one here.

I don't mind a little OT chat on the cctalk list - it doesn't hurt for the
most part. My objection is that there are probably hundreds of forums that
are better suited for Linux talk. Why post here, when it will annoy some
