So what? It's discriminatory to only let intelligent people into MIT and
Princeton. It's discriminatory to only let people over 16 with licenses
drive. It's discriminatory to only allow people with handicapped plates
park in handicapped spaces. You act like discrimination is automatically a
bad thing. It's not.

So you are intolerant? Well I don't tolerate poeople who don't tolerate
intolerance!

If you were so smart, you would recognize that for each AOL "unsubscribe"
sent to the list, there are at least a half-dozen replies and comments.
Such a filter would not help anyone but the person who created it and then
in only the most minor way.
