Subject: RE: probs with this mailing-list

well..if the forum is like most forums, it'll get lots of "yep", ":)" or
"lol" posts...

and that'll generate a lot of mailinglist-traffic..not to mention
flame-wars and stupid off=topic shite like that....

i don't think it'll work

but that's just my 2 cents...
