I did not say I didn't say I did not no the guide lines at all. I know
pretty much but I have heard people on this list say the same thing, after
you have scolded them. It is just this simple the list has no guide lines to
be seen. You just make them up as you go and people can not predict what you
are thinking ahead of time. That is all I am saying. It wouldn't hurt to
have guide lines to go by.




Thanks,

Subject: [tabi] list guidelines

Blackjack,

sorry, I don't buy your excuse that you didn't know the guidelines for the
list because they aren't posted each month.

everyone knows what's allowed and what isn't, by the name of the list alone.

And from time to time, I use specific examples of posts which aren't
blindness or Tallahassee related.  those guidelines are simple enough we
don't need posting every month.

Now, for your particular post, Lynn was pointing out your remark about
"we've got too much government in our lives as it is." is both a politically
inflammatory statement, and off topic.  I wasn't suggesting you change the
subject, I'm saying your particular political beliefs don't meet the list
rules, as well as having nothing to do with what was being discussed.
