Now Charles you and I both know too well that protestations about S/N 
only contributed to lowering it. We might not appreciate the irrelevant
claptrap that's appearing on cryonet, but there's really only one 
alternative - unsubscribe.

It's been proposed in the past that some generous soul come forth and 
produce a moderated version of cryonet. This really is too much to ask
of anyone I think. Perhaps a self-moderating alternative might be to 
set up a wikiwikiweb on cryonet.org? I can contribute a perl script to
do this if Kevin's interested, or of course there are several others 
available open-source. If folk don't know what a wikiweb is, check out

Perhaps a RealAudio version would be easier to make?
