UPDATE: July 7th, 2012. In my short time on the list, several posts have been very though provoking, perhaps a few too many have run with the treacle of you can do it, live free and all will turn out well in the end. Today’s message, however was jarring: A message which asks religious people to consider suicide?

I'm a bit uncomfortable with it, especially if young people are subscribers, but if they're not editing/censoring at all, I guess I'm okay with free speech on the listserve -- for now.
