        Err. I reserve the right to *plonk* people, if you think they
 have the right to speak their minds. Since when has the right to my
 attention been a freedom other people enjoy? And if I wish to share
 my kill file details with the public, why is it OK to censor _me_,
 and deny me the freedom of so sharing my killfile?
