On the contrary, ExI-chat is intentionally way more lightly moderated than
any internet group I know.  This is sometimes to our detriment, but is in
keeping with the origins of this list.  In my opinion, the benefits outweigh
the costs of doing business that way.  We do sometimes need to suffer fools
(not you, Amon, but you may have read some here occasionally) in order to
encourage open expression.


Carry on, me lads!
