Sorry if I came off as argumentative, I didn't intend for that. I absolutely agree that the admin has last word and generally unsympathetic to opposing viewpoints. I am compliant. Let me give a formal apology to the list, for unscrewing the cap off the can of worms. I apologize, and you wont hear another word from me on this. Since, it is, after all not a big deal to me. It's just an email list. This list has brought better things to the table for many people than chattering about email list preferences. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
