One of the things I learned from programming was to automate tasks that 
were repetitive in nature.  I can always regulate my own time by 
automating the tasks I need to perform for my personal requirements.  
Most of the traffic on the list is about how the list can create a 
special case so that the math boys don't have to be responsible for 
their own environment.  I think this is a bad idea.  If you want to join 
an email list, learn how to use your email client.  Otherwise, we will 
build the sort of monolithic crap that is typical of bureaucratic 
societies that baby their privileged members.
