Good idea Joe, shoulda thought of it myself. :)

Though I must have missed the post you're referring to.

Did someone impugn my dignity? To the list, without Cc'ing me? Goodness, what is the world coming to. :O

Ok, for those of you that don't know, I am the owner of this often useful, always hectic and sometimes crazy list.

This list is not moderated for a number of reasons.

  1. I trust people to behave themselves.
  2. There's lots of creative folks here and good ideas come from free-range thinking. ( kinda like free-range chicken you know? we even lay eggs sometimes )
  3. It's more interesting that way
  4. I don't have time.

Did I mention I don't have time to moderate this list?

The reason I asked to discontinue the questionable activity regarding cracking CD copyright infringement schemes is chiefly this:

   *I don't want or need the hassle!*

I'm one of the people that the lawyers will call. Yes it has happened. I don't like to talk to lawyers. Especially when they've loosened up their holsters.

Bruce Bergman is the owner of, and he doesn't like to talk to lawyers either.

So, in a nutshell, the only times I've ever 'cracked down' on this list are.

  1. a sociopath that was baiting everyone
  2. Racial/ethnic/sexual humor
  3. blatantly offensive material ( i.e. I received many complaints )
  4. Off Topic threads that just go on too long.

So, you probably won't hear from me often in the capacity of list owner.

But if you do, it's nothing personal, please just be polite and gracious, and this list will be of benefit for everyone.

Thanks for reading,

Jared Still
