I would tend to agree with Tim's assessment that this list lacks 
LD is a very uncomfortable place to be for people just looking for 
informative and/or entertaining discussion. I suspect many people, like 
stay on and try to tune out or ignore the flare-ups - or unsubscribe. (I'm 
not talking about the "passionate yet informative" contributions, just the 
really senseless and irrelevant ones). I think it would be nice to have 
a little bit of moderation.
