Subject: Unsubscribing

At this point I am unsubscribing from CryoNet since it serves no useful 
purpose whatsoever. Those who wish to discuss quantum states, machine 
intelligence, and all the rest of it have been politely encouraged to use 
a more appropriate forum, but have shown no interest in doing so. This 
philosophical waffle has driven away any meaningful material about human 
cryopreservation. I suspect I am not the first person to unsubscribe in 

Kevin Brown has shown great dedication, establishing CryoNet and 
maintaining its archives. Most of you are now wasting his time.

I consider it one of the greatest ironies, and the most telling 
indictments of human attitudes toward mortality, that a group of people 
who are supposedly more concerned with staying alive than 99.999 percent 
of the population should spend their time in this way--in a forum that 
is supposedly dedicated to cryonics.

Certainly anyone who becomes interested in cryonics for the first time, 
and discovers CryoNet, will receive a VERY strange impression of our 
priorities. This forum could serve as a recruitment tool; instead, it 
seems designed to have the opposite effect.
