i may not be serious enough, but i found the little vignette funny and i
think that that sort of crap actually belongs on the moderated list too, so
that the newbies and the old-net-timers are reminded that this is not an
information service for the net-worriers [sic], but a messy and mixed list
with people who have all sorts of twisted interests in and relations with
each other, on- and off-line, some of which get expressed in fine rhetoric,
others in aNt!-korPoRAT inventions. even virtual collectives only become
subjects through a certain degree of self-referentiality.

long live redundancy, rhythm and refrain.
