It would be helpful to get some clarificatin here before keel over from
astonishment. Are you implying that there is a concept that lists could
be moved without warning. And 'not trying to force'? The choice of words
no doubt gives the comments an uneasy feeling you may not intend, but
'force' and 'warning' just seem to give me uneasy feeling. I can't
imagine that anyone would touch any darn thing about a list without this
being the total wish of the list owner. If anyone posted any of my list
messages on a newsgroup without my knowing, I'd go totally balistic.
