Subject: Apologies, Splitting CryoNet

My posting #11865 yesterday had some extra stuff on the end that I forgot to
delete before sending--repeats from the previous day, sorry about that.

As one more suggestion to consider on possibly splitting CryoNet (and not
too original, but worth a closer look I think), suppose we have a special
class of subject that would be indicated by a colon (:) or some other chosen
symbol. This would precede the subject heading proper, like this:

:Consciousness, Turing machines, and Book-feelings.

The beginning colon could be detected automatically. Subscribers would have
the option of registering as a non-recipient of messages like this. I don't
know how hard it would be to set this up, but it would be little trouble to
posters (and left up to their discretion) to tag appropriate messages as a
courtesy to others who are not interested in the said subject. Of course we
would have to agree, more or less, on which type of subject the colon is to
refer to, but in this case I think that's pretty definite.
