     Any of you are free to try and start any list you like.

     This comment seems to be very hostile to ADORE-L

     It implies that DOGMA is bad and that itself IS DOGMA.

     Remember you are free to post and I am free to post.

     People who get caught up in posting ABOUT others postings,
are not using this list to its fullest extent.

     This implies that the people who hate Homer are on ADORE-L becase
they like hating Homer and that is their sole occupation here.

     These are the people I wish would leave.  They have nothing
to post of their own originality, or else they would LOVE a Homer
free zone (HFZ) such as provided by ADORE-L.

     Those that love Homer would stay on this list and probably not
be bothered with ADORE2, recognizing that people who need a
Homer Free Zone are different from themselves.

     Those that laugh at Homer are no better than those that
Hate Homer.  They are bored and are here only for the entertainment.

     Just remember, He who laughs last, laughs best.

     And I assure you, that's me folks.

     The insults can be stopped if people would stop insulting me
overtly or covertly.  A covert insult is demanding PROOF or insisting
I not post unless I present proof.
