This is my view as well.  The questions posted on Taxacom give me new ideas
for my own activities.  I'd like to see the answers to those questions on
Taxacom, too, without going through the enormous mutual inconvenience of
contacting the questioner and asking that all replies be forwarded to me.

The right way to avoid information you don't want is to ignore it, rather
than forcing everyone else to do without it as well.
