Frankly, I *already* empathize with Paul about Mr. Fleming's postings, but
I find that I can skim those messages *very* quickly, and the delete key is
only a pinky-stretch away.  Someday Mr. Fleming may surprise us.

My concern is that people who *need* to see all the input may be filtering
out messages using automation instead of the quick-scan technique.  What is
the purpose of a PUBLIC list if members of the public are screened out?
(No matter how justified the provocation.

Paul is of course free (as an individual) to do as he pleases.  He *could*
have done it quietly and never get a rise out of me.  :)  I just hope that
KIM and the proposed board of trustees don't follow his avowed example.
