I'm all for it!

I do. It reduces the clutter of influx of messages I get every
day.. because I subscribed to this list (by your recommendation), I've
gotten on average 50 messages per day... that's a little too much
especially when I have other projects to tackle and correspondence by
I understand that this decManager list style of maintaining the
moo-cows list will require extra work and typing to the person
posting.. perhaps this should encourage him/her to think about what
they're posting before doing so.
-> Yours in service of the goal of a more useful list for us all,
A more useful list is what I'm after!
2 thumbs up here.
