Hmm.  I'm not sure how to tell a relevant topic from noise.  The thing that
makes Usenet unbearable at times is a combination of flame wars and endless
meta-discussion (like my very post here, for which I apologize even as I
write it <0.3 wink>).  Case-sensitivity is neither of those; its role seemed
entirely on-topic, and it was particularly interesting to see informed
challenges to the oft-cited Alice position on this.

OK:  I've found a foolproof way to tell the difference.  A topic that
*seems* appropriate *is* -- until Guido sends a msg with "no more!" in the
subject line <wink>.
