This might refresh your memory:
7 Dec = Camcorders
6 Dec = LVM
2 Dec = Swap partitions versus swap files
1 Dec = Encrypting system partitions

Why force everyone else to leave? You can personally disband
your membership with the "unsubscribe" option.

Self-evident nonsense.

Not true. London Perl Mongers have posted here for years. The only
recent problem I can think of was when an update to a meeting was
sent that did not mention which meeting it was updating.

Many jobs have posted without any negative comment, most recently
Positive Internet. It's only when they ignore the list rules that
problems happen, and recently that was all down to one individual.

See above for recent examples that prove this to be not true.

The recent example of screen readers was ignored because the original
email just mentioned "Orca" and "Julian" without saying what they
those programs were or what problems they had with them. I sent an
private email asking for clarification and was ignored. Later I sent
an email suggesting the Orca mailing list as a better place to ask,
but this suggestion was never acted on.

Lastly if a thread is boring or annoying you then you can get Gmail
to ignore that thread:
