     It is impossible to make a list where some people, because
they are obnoxious, are not allowed to go.  Someone (me) would
have to make such value judgements, and I abhor (anti-adore) such

     Besides ADORE-L does have its capital punishment rules for
expurgation which can be called upon in severe cases.  But obnoxious
views are not enough.  Redundant stupidity is what most of life it
made of, and sure I would sometimes like to filter it out, but
more I would like to start a LARGE COLLECTION.

     The capital rules for ADORE-L apply to things that effect its
sanctity in relation to the bigger universe in which it lives.

     If the slime starts to ooze out over the sides of the confines,
THEN we ZAP it.

     It is more possible to make a list were HOMER will not go,
and THAT I intend to do.

     What ever list I am on will always be the open list for all
to come and Heckle.  Besides considering my new Mortal Mandate,
I WANT them to come and speak up, so that I can trap their silly
asses in formaldehyde for all to see.

     ADORE2 will be a Homer Free Zone.  It may be a ghost town,
but I think not.  It may however turn into a Manhattan 1990 Zone.
