I suggest that the length limit for any single CryoNet post be reduced
from 40K to 20K, and the number of posts per person be set at 2 per day.
This would still allow long, serious posts (such as case reports) to be
"serialized" over a period of days, as has been done before; and would
restore some functionality to the list.

Bauge, if you seriously want to start a Norwegian cryonics facility, start
your own damned list. The British people working to establish an
independent capability don't regard themselves as so important that they
have the right to flood a general-interest cryonics list with their
specific problems. They display good manners and a consideration for other
people. You could learn from them, if you ever learn from anyone.

Please don't make such sacrifices on our behalf.

Why do you think this is? Could it be that you are an exceptionally
irritating, obtuse person even by cryonics standards? What other
explanation is there?

Why do you think it is that you have received such an unprecedented number
of critical emails? Could it be that you have an unusual capacity to irk
people by being self-obsessed and obnoxiously prolix? Also, could it be
that a community which feels a strong need to overcome a reputation for
kookiness, feels threatened by the antics of a self-righteous wacko who
wants to dig up and cryopreserve someone who has been dead and buried for
more than three months?

The mere fact that your past acts were considered "colorful" enough to be
the subject of an entire humorous movie portraying you as a nut case
should be sufficient to tell you something, if you were ever capable of
