As I have requested *numerous* times -- turn postgrey off.

Not only does it make the mailing list experience quite unpleasant
(I'm receiving all kinds of mails out of order, for example), it has
made interacting with people painful in the past.  I have asked people
to mail me things, and when they do it takes many, many minutes (in
one case, over an hour) for the email to make it through.  Keep in
mind that this was in interacting only with other *developers*, in the
past, as we have not been public for long enough for a user to use my address.

This is a detriment to usability, far more so than any spam-blocking
benefit.  I suggest that we install spamprobe (or something similar,
if anything else is so effective) on, and turn off this
particular abortion of a "technology".  Before the mailing lists were
on, I could just elect not to use my email address
-- now that they are, I cannot avoid these undesirable effects.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
