Slimming Down (in ListServ land) 2003 Apr 08

Dropped 2 mailing lists today.

Too much email.

As in, I still get too much email — but now I’ll have less interminable nattering in my inbox.

Good discussion lists are civil places to be. I have no need for places of incivility and rudeness and pedantry. The world is that way, and I like my places to talk and socialize to not be so much like the world. If a private club is just like the whole world, what’s the point of the private club?
