I'm going to have to with Steve here.  I've been on this list for a while
and the signal-to-noise ratio is horrendous.  Is there a charter for this
list?  Without a charter it is hard to say what does and doesn't belong on
the list.

I would fathom that all the items Steve mentioned above do not belong on the
list.  Too bad the majority of the mail generated by the list falls into
those categories.
