I think it is worth noting that this "p-contest" touched on some good
tech stuff of interest to at least a few members, involved no "four
letter" words ("piddling" notwithstanding ;-) ), and didn't keep
getting worse and worse, er, degenerate.  I honestly think that's a
step forward.  And the list has again gone for almost 6 weeks without a
brawl, and then just this mild one.  Then again, this one didn't get to

will), I don't understand how anyone can be bored with a post that they
don't have to read.  It's not as if any one post displaces any others
