i think that those who replied to PRJ's "moderation" attempt were
reacting to the irony of him telling people to keep personal stuff of
the list, when he tends to bloat nearly every message with long-winded
waffle and boasts and other annoyingly irrelevant chatter. As others
have said: "who cares?"...nobody wants to know about it.
some of the real content of his messages is worthwhile...if you can wade
through the sickeningly ingratiating asides, that is.
personal flames don't belong here.
gratuitous personal revelations don't belong here either.
