I happen to want to discuss - or at least listen in on - xml stuff. If the xml-dev list condones spam, it gets very hard to build a decent filter against it, and reasonable discussion gets drowned in the noise. > In a free and open marketplace, internet spam, junk mail, annoying > commercials on TV, etc. are just a consequence of freedom. Yeah, sure. Like your college room mate playing loud music all night before your big exam, or sleazy phone calls in the middle of the night. Like farting at the dinner table, spam is a total lack of courtesy and respect for the recipients. I'm going to excercise *my* freedom of speech by reacting to spam by forwarding copies of the message to the people responsible for the domain (listed in the "whois" database), and the people responsible for that domain's net access, and the people responsible for any URL or similar reference that happens to be in the message, plus any postmasters along the Received: way. At least. Sorry about the rant, now don't yank my chain again! -kzm -- If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
