What are you disagreeing about?  Discussion should not even *show up*
in that list, is what I am saying; it is not an mailing
list.  If it isn't there, then people can't get confused, can they?

(I see that that is not a pipermail URL, but a mailman URL; maybe that
is the source of disagreement?  I thought all of that junk was handled
by pipermail.  The high-order bit remains that it is *not* a
mailing list, and should not show up on


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.
