     Look, let's get something straight.

     ADORE-L is a serious list, not a symposium for jackals and jackasses.

     There are people on this list who take the subject of life in all
of its aspects very seriously and would like to either learn or
accomplish something by being on this list.

     The only reason the stupid elements on this list are
tolerated for one second is because of some basic principles
of democracy and free speech which are necessary for the rest
of us to function.

     Those of you on this list who think you are at the zoo should
perhaps re-consider that you are IN the zoo.  Our zoo.

     However the gate is open and you are free to leave.  We wish
you wouldn't though as we would have fewer to throw popcorn at and
fewer animal noises to record on the permanent record.
