I am sorry if I came across as "condescending and totalitarian", it was not
my intention one bit.  It was a simple request that I felt was made in a
respectful non-aggressive manner...  After hearing the trouble you have with
the style of list you are using I believe it understandable to communicate
as you have been.  Again, I apologize for any implied ill intent it was just
one of my many efforts to keep my inbox tame and effectively read each
useful SATLUG transaction in a sensible manner.
