In My Not So Humble Opinion

there is no need for apology.

there is no need to cut back.

i enjoy th chicken / th hockey match and had i more energy at present,
(supposedly being responsible for the energy of the universe as mC~2 but
very much not) i would be pouring tea and joining in th fun. i would
miss th chicken football and the uniqueness that sylvi brings to this
list in what i feel is her /poetic/ writing. some considered James Joyce
too difficult to read when he first published, and banned him. are we in
danger of banning individuality? if so... what does this say of the
individuality of our /musical/ expression? i would be deeply concerned
for it....

for those of you who dont wish to read, try using Mozilla Thunderbird
( which will allow you to filter and block a thread
subject. i'd suggest maybe sylvi and i can have our fun then by altering
subject headings, thus allowing th yawning ones to digest their EA
without /....lvl OMGWTFBBQ ~~~~ .chickens.

the vast majority of thee live in the US of A no?

there is something called the First Amendment which upholds freedom of
expression and freedom of speech.

this is all that sylvi wishes to exercise - her freedom of expression.

there is no need to curb it.

skip over it if you wish... i can't read all of CEC in a day (unless i'm
extremely bored at work and spend the whole day doing it.... tsk tsk
;).... ;p.... )

mC~; kinda squared....
