Many of us get a lot of messages and look to the subject line to know whether we should look at them in detail. The present (hopefully not recursive) subject is not useful - the discussion is (IMO) a useful one about whether browsers should support the DOM or not. Direct moderation often kills threads (this may, of course be a good thing sometimes!), and the members of this list are asked to see if changes of subject line may be valuable occasionally. In some areas (e.g. SAX2) it is likely that tens/hundreds of postings can occur without much deviation - in other areas the subject mutates and so needs re-identifying. There has so far been a small positive feeling that moderation is occasionally useful and that the constitution I suggested is a reasonable start. This is a good time to remind people that they should NOT quote the list signature. Some time ago we discussed whether the signature was valuable - the recent removal and consequent increase in "unsubscribe"s showed that it was. But one copy per posting - attached by the mailer - is all that is required! P. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
