Hi Steve / others,

But I do think it is time we moved over to subscribers-only : that is 
the greatest filter of all, and I can't seem to think of even a single 
reason how the current policy benefits anyone.

To be truthful, I don't mind the spam so much -- essentially because 
there is not as much as one might dread. But the problem is the impunity 
with which the same folks feel free (perhaps even obliged) to send us 
unwanted love letters over and over again -- while we just do nothing 
except ignore the spam.

Perhaps there should be a vote on this, and if the ayes > the nays, we 
should make the change long overdue.

Tx and Regards,

Manish Jain
