fuck that, if my name is going to be connected to a mailing law it
will not be a meta-meta based law. so here's my law, before you _reply_
take a few moments and make sure that the message benefits the
mailing list population significantly more than you peceive it to
benefit you (or your ego)

keep it true to its message.
