The below post is number 39 for the 'Whats Going On Saga'

list of this size??  This list is rather large and see's quite a few 
messages daily.  I have 1260 messages since Feb. 10th from this

think some sort of moderation would be helpful to the list.

Just a suggestion...

Don't you feel a little silly posting both these statements in the same
message?  You certainly look it:(
