Yes, in the English language, when someone says, keep it clean, it is meant that they are asking a person, or several people, depending on who it is, to not use terms or language that is thought to be offensive to someone. I think your message, while not meaning to sound like it, comes off as being somewhatlike you are trying to run the list. We have a moderator, a person who runs the list and I am quite sure that if he sees any problems he will handle them. If you find any of the e-mails a problem, simply use your delete key.

i never said or ment to say that somebody on this list is using wrong language.
i never told anyone how to use this list.
i only asked politly to keep the contents of the mails in order with the subject of this list.
english is not my native language. if i make some mistakes, well so be it.
i was never offensive, some of you are now. i am sorry for that.
if i used a expression, which has an other meaning then what it is actually saying, i am sorry, but you cannot expect of me to know all the expressions in a foreign language.

You're not the moderator of this list so who are you to tell us what we can and can't do? Like Judith, I strongly suggest that you use your spell checker. Your spelling is terrible! I also suggest that you take a course in English grammar.

As far as "keeping the list clean" none of us use vulgar language. If you don't like what some of us post on our messages, there's that handy delete key.

As far as how many times a list member posts a question about something, that's none of your business! This list is for all of us to help each other with questions we might have. I just have one more thing to say and that's this. Get off your soap box and quit telling us how we should run the list. That's for the moderators to do--not you!

We have 2 moderators for this list and they do their job very well. If you have no interest in reading duplicate messages about a thread on list just use your delete key, everyone else does. As for what people have time to do, that is none of your business. Also, if you are going to go on list with a message, I would suggest you use a spell check, your spelling is atrocious. Most of us understand the subject line, "Keep this list clean" to mean that there was offensive language in one of the messages. The people on this list never use dirty language in their messages, we are too sophisticated for that. Besides, if such words were to cross our list the moderators would have kicked the offending person off list! If you are going to communicate with a list, learn the vernacular of the group you are communicating with! We have people on this list from all over the world and don't need anyone hiding behind a national flag and calling the rest of us offensive!

Subject: keep this list clean

dear list members,
since a few weeks i am member of this list and i try to read every mail in it.
that is very difficult, because there are a lot of things in it, which donot belong here.
member a has a question and several members give the same answer. that cannot be changed, but some days later a member, who has answered already several times, gives an answer that has already been givven several times. that is unnessecasy.
some members seems to have a lot of time and answer every mail they get. also when they donot know the answer or they give a wrong answer.
over the weekend one member has apologied 3 times for a wrong answer.
i would like to ask you to keep this list clean and anly keep it for questions about jaws and correct answers for them.
there are several chat-sites about jaws where you can write al the other things you want to get rid of.

if you want to react to this mail, that does not fit in this list, so sent me an email personally:

thank you very much for your cooperation.
amando tortolero
