That's another issue. The one to post such lists will sooner or later be
loathed. I thought that if a stats post gets sent, the killfile
recommendation could fit 'on the same wagon'. If you sent me a list by

Nobody would do that. I think not. One precaution I already take is to never
get involves with Google Groupers. Quoting issues aside, there continues to
be this trend of hit-and-run posters in this newsgroup, which is deterring.

reading recommendations, perhaps involvement in this group would be
improved. I tend to stay away most of the time (for the past ~2 years).
