Yes, Gene, I think you are doing fine. While all of us
thought the world of Carlos, we thought George Washington
was good, but there's no point telling Donald Trump that
George Washington did it this way. George Washington is not
the President now; Donald Trump is. Same with the list.
Carlos does not own it; you do.

Hi Gene,
You are doing fine.
You will always find someone who has nothing better to do
than criticize Thanks for all you do.

Though you aren't aware of it I would imagine, the list has
been gradually increasing its members over time. If this
list starts to decline and the reason may be me, I'll
consider appointing another owner. Laaz would make a

good owner. He is now the moderator. I put the well-being
of the list above whether I am owner. I am pleased to serve
as owner. If that becomes detrimental to the list, I'll
step down if I am convinced that is the right thing to do.
I am not list owner for my ego. I'm list owner because I
was asked to be and people generally approved.

Now, if you wish to continue to insult me and show your
disdain for how the list is run, please do so on the chat
list, where almost anything is allowed

to be discussed.

Well I think he would've made an issue out of it if they
were over 71 messages in the thread and what was being
discussed was no longer relevant to the current subject
line. And I just had to go back to my trash folder and I
found the thread, and that thread his head 71 messages
probably plus yes, I no you talk about not being guilty of
changing subject lines but I think after a while he would've
come forward and requested the change. Oh well it's your
list it'll fall apart just like others that I've been a part
of have. It's OK.

No, Carlos never strictly enforced that rule. I remember
a message
where he said it would be a good thing if people change
subject lines
if the discussion changes in a thread but that it is so
common that
this isn't done that he wouldn't stricgtlhy enforce it.
He even said
that he is guilty of not changing subject lines himself.

I believe he would change a subject line off and on. he
may have
reminded
list members that it would be a good thing if they did but
as I said,
he never made much of an issue about it.

Hi Brian, I'm fully aware of the functionality of
groups.io. That's
not the point. I was interested in the discussion at hand.
And I know
one of Carlos's rules was to keep subject lines on topic
especially
whenever I came to the tech talk group.

Those using any service owe it to themselves to become

greater degree of control than many.
