It saddens me that Ralph reads history this way - especially after I
spent tens of hours on the unpublished-archived Dorset GNU+Linux User
Group mailing list  :-(

The lengthy discussions on the Dorset list last month resulted in some
list members mailing Ralph (who admins the list) offlist to complain
about the discussion, presumably because they don't know how to use
the advanced "mute thread" features of their email clients, and Ralph
said "the thread is now declared closed and the topic unwelcome."

Which makes me surprised when you mentions it here, Ralph.
