law and democracy have nothing to do with mailing lists. Admin is the  
boss - if he boots you are booted

please distinguish between mere breaches of etiquette - not trimming  
posts, top posting, getting OT, being longwinded, using smsspeak -  
with behaviour that damages the list. The first requires peer  
pressure to rectify, but the second can only be cured with the boot.  
And i think anything personal you may have against me could be taken
