'[ADMIN]: All these tags are fine...'

Phillip;  We appreciate your thoughts on the matter.  But I think that the list
works magnificently!  The idea is to allow PIC people, who struggle through a long
list of disciplines, to have access to a fast forum to solve knowledge problems.
I think that James N is doing a great job of administering.  I think the tags are
fine, even though I will keep getting all of it anyhow.  I have gotten good at
swiping entire subjects when they do not interest me.

The PIClist is working stupendously well for an informal collection of
non-affiliated people.  I welcome improvements, and nothing to strip down the
content which already takes place.

I may be injecting personal preference, but I think that religion and politics
would be best elsewhere.  Unless a very religious PIC engineer is running for
office.  As we cover the globe, there is far too much oportunity to offend on
these topics.  I would not portend to lecture a Muslim on my beliefs.

All in favor, say EYE.

Chris Eddy

I tend to agree with Chris.   I think the list is fine the way it
is.  I also agree that there is a lot of chaff with the wheat, but
that's why there is a delete key with every computer.  You just
delete the posts that don't interest you.  I get well over 100
posts a day, most from the PIC list.  It takes me all of 5 minutes
to weed out the ones I have no interest in at all, if I take my time.
Less if I'm in a hurry.  Then I read those that do interest me.
The point is for the amount of effort it takes to delete all the
OT posts that you (I) don't want to see, it just doesn't make any
sense (to me anyway) to raise all this cane about things such as:

"make sure you put this in the subject line"  ...or..

"don't discuss this particular subject"  ..or..

"make sure all subjects are in this order"  ..or..

whatever it is.   It seems to me that more energy is spent (wasted)
in verbalizing what you should and shouldn't do than it would take
to delete those posts that are not on subjcet or specifically deal
with PIC processors.   Mind you I don't condone this type of
behavior.  And I think things should be done the correct way.
But, as far as I'm concerned, it's not worth the bother it would
take me to complain and make the other person comply.  Just as soon
as you get one person straightened out, two more appear.  It would
be a losing battle.


The knowledge of the members of this list is an awesome resource.
That knowledge and expertise comes at a price.  And in my opinion,
a very small price.  That price being you have to deal with the
posts that you are not interested in to get the information you
are interested in.   Come on people, what do you expect, really?
We live in an imperfect world, and no amount of complaining or
restructuring of protocol will make it perfect.  You can always
improve things, but they'll never be perfect.  This list is one of
those things.

Bottom line from my perspective...

I'll take the chaff with the wheat. I get rid of the chaff myself,
and live on the wheat.  No one need be the wiser.

I also think James is doing a fine job administering this list.

Last but not least, for those who want to give me their reasons
why I'm full of it regarding what I just said, address all emails
to spam_OUTjimswrongTakeThisOuTspamjpes.com.   I'll read each one.   If requested, I'll
apologise to those that are offended by my statements.

Okay, I'm done now.


                                           Regards,

                                             Jim
