Sorry, I should have said what my position is on quoting from mailing lists. I
never have, and never will, unless I get specific permissions from each person
quoted. AFAIK as a journalist, lists like this are "off the record" from go to whoa.

If the list members still don't want journos poking their noses in, then I
will happily be unsubscribed. I would like to see you guys succeed in what
you've been doing today as much as anyone else, and I don't want to spoil it.
