i find this to be a good response. 

i hadn't thought of the 'chain-reaction' effects of posting to a list
which is well explained in the above. 

i was also surprised to see that his name comes up at the top of a
google search (already!!) though it doesn't show up at all in my clusty
or yahoo or excite search at all. anyone know why? possibly, google does
things much faster??

this is an interesting thing to think about actually. some people try
very hard to get high rankings on google, but fail miserably. i looked
into websearch optimization some time ago and recall that you can do
'naughty' things like provide an excessive number of irrelevant keywords
and get penalized - not sure if something like that could be applied
