1)  If the Perl yahoos would quit cross-posting flaming bags of shit,
it'd be over.
2)  Now that Tom C has left for more fertile pastures, we have been
visited with Mr. X.  I wonder if we have 5 more visitations to go?
3)  The real reason for this newsgroup/mailing list is, ipso facto, the
discussion of Python.  I don't care for having to put on my asbestos
bunny suit just to read my mail.
4)  I use Netscape mail.  Can someone out there tell me how to killfile
Tom Christianson and Xah?  Thank you, and I apologize for the off-topic
nature of this request.  Or is it?
