I totally agree with you, and I find your message very polite where Mortis's message seems ridiculous to be on such a 
demanding tone
of voice while he is in no position to demand anything, legally or socially.

And then the statement about updating the list charter. Ludicrous!

If any user of this mailing list wants to have certain content filtered out, let this be virusses or support questions 
then they should filter this out themselfs! And if they cannot do it they'd beter hope other people don't have the 
support questions
filtered out...

As an observer lurking!.
I would have to say that the people hosting this list owe us (the
subscribers) nothing more than the fact that they host this list, I'm sure
this alone brings it's share of flack and I thank them for the service and
would suggest that any anger would be better directed at the offender,
inform them and move on....thats what I would suggest, isn't the internet
about sharing idea's and information??......this is a prime list and being
un-moderated is one of it's attractions!.
I sure if that was to happen, next would be huge threads on the software
that should be used for moderation....which in a strange sort of way would
be the very thing your complaining about......so leave well enough
No more flame or the inane.

my couple a cents worth........

In future please do not use this list for
software support.

Dear list owners,

This is a public letter from me telling you what to do.  You
must respond to me.

Create a mail filter to remove these harmful messages from
my inbox.  It is intolerable to spread software support
questions on the list.  This is clearly against the charter.
And dangerous to the internet at large.  Especially those of
us using Outlook.

I am not willing to perform this work myself.

Oh, yeah, and you must add something about this to the
charter.  Get with the program.  You guys are slacking.  You
owe us better then this.
Outlook (2000sp3 loses line feeds when it gets:

Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Disposition: inline
Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary
MIME-Version: 1.0
X-Mailer: MIME-tools 5.411 (Entity 5.404)

No one else seems to lose them.
*yawn*  Wonder what else it does wrong?
