A "small thread of no interest" that was titled "The Definition of
On-Topic"??? You might want to re-read that statement a few times so that
the complete (something)ness of it sinks in to you.
And that wasn't the only thread where it was brought up. I guess from now on
when I solicit list input I shouldn't just make a clear concise subject like
"The Definition of On-Topic", I should instead send out personal invitations
to remind folks to participate. You know, anytime there is an "issue" on the
list, people are awfully quick to suggest solutions which require more time
from me - instead of them taking care of themselves and being more
responsible. Well, if you don't vote, don't complain.
To put it more succinctly - Failure on your part to read a thread with such
an important subject does not translate into an obligation on my part to

Why not, you and others obviously expect ME to read every post.
Ya know what, I just don't need the grief.
