list nazis

things have changed a lot since the days when this list first started up.
back then discussions were more casual; nowadays if you cannot prove
what you say beyond a reasonable doubt to a panel of self appointed
ministers of truth,  you come under the wrath of the list nazis.

correcting a factual inaccuracy is one thing.  but subjecting everybody
(i've seen it done to many others) to intense scrutiny and cross
examination as if this is a criminal trial is just a needless power trip.
what does it accomplish?

since i see quite a number of owners from the seattle area posting here
i'm thinking of starting a smaller regional mailing list with the idea
that its focus would be to facilitate social gatherings, local track (and
rally) events and such.  a more social rather than a nuts and bolts group.
any interest?
