Thanks, but then Adrian and you found a way.  Just take out or intentionally
misspell the word Stanford, so that if you wander off, you could just label
it "ai class."  Then it would be subject to the usual posting limit
guidelines, and all is fair game.  As you suggested, BillK, it can be set up
to filter a post only if it contains both "ai" and Stanford, and always keep
any post which contains the word "was" anywhere in the subject line.
Furthermore, with this pool of hipsters, I am most confident you guys can do
it.  For myself I don't want to filter any of the ai class discussion, but I
want those who are not interested in that to be free.

Hmm, on the contrary, if we are sufficiently clever, we can win em all,
every game every time.  {8-]
