     ADORE-L is an open list, un moderated and un censored.

     There is no rule about agreeing with ADORIAN principles
in order to post on this list as all know who have read the
charter in detail.  Kjoll has not by his own declaration.

     The purpose of ADORE-L is a wide ranging discussion,

     Please read the charter.

     The rules set out in the APL's have nothing to do with ADORE,
but with the protection of my own ass considering that I can have
my head handed to me for the things that y'all say.

     No one is asking you to agree with the details of ADORE, only
to agree with and abide by the RULES as laid out in the charter
and the APL's.

     If anyone finds this unreasonable, impossible or otherwise
in need of correction, please let me know.

     As for bouncing people off the list... well flaming flamers
is so much more fun.  Of course if a majority of people on this list
tell me they are going to leave in protest over the continued
presence of one person, well I would invite them to flame the flamers
too and fill their mail box until they choose to leave on their own.

     See I TOLD you he was capable of content.  He even asked me
how to leave the list but decided to stay on.
