A friend of mine says there are people who can handle usenet, and
those who can't, and stick to mailing lists (she actually made this
statement in reference to the difference b/w alt.poly and the poly
community mailing lists--and also theorizes that it has to do with
personality type).

I have to say, and I mean it as a complement, that I think of rescue
more as a USENET-type gig, without the spam of USENET these days.

Heh.  Dave roasted me a good one on like my second post.  Now we have
crazy jokes in email.

Some people just can't take a intellectually challenging (not in the sense
of the information is challenging, but in the sense of people will challenge
the assumptions and opinions of others) environment.
