Accusations of "intruding politics" and "racism" on the board

bollocks.  there was a rational discussion on snow driving that then delved
in to torsen territory.  there was then an exchange of notes between scott j
and myself on this topic prior to me desisting to allow scott to get his
customary "last word".  i have long ago given up on trying to educate some
people, others haven't - this thread has since continued on the torsen list
with other contributors, not including myself.

this sort of discussion is *not* territory for the torsen list, it *is*
territory for the quattro list.  i accept that the excesses of the past wrt
meaningless debates on the torsen cannot be repeated.  nor have they been.
rational discussions on this topic are a part of this list.

i am perfectly happy to delete all sorts of crap notes from this list which
have little or no relevance to audi's, or in fact 95% of the people on this
list, of which this thread is the latest.

live and let live, or should that be: live free or die?

As for making "politicizing" comments,  there's far less thoughtful
conversation on almost any unmoderated e-mail list.  At least you didn't
call anyone a name like some of the audifans "contributors" continue to do
during exchanges of opinion.

And as far as waste of bandwidth, what the heck about the Tor$en flamewars
we keep seeing despite establishment of a place to stick that stuff?
