Q. SINCE THIS IS A HUMOR LIST ANYTHING GOES, RIGHT?
A. This list is a spinoff from ECCHST-L (Ecclesiastical History). It is a place for those of us who are so inclined to take humorous conversations outside in the hallway, so to speak. There are a variety of religious and non-religious sensibilities among the listmembers. On ECCHST-L we try to respect that. We welcome non-ECCHST-L people in this cybersapce and ask that they share this respect.

We don't want to dampen spirits or impose constraints. We just ask that some sense of decorum be maintained. The founder of this list is a crusty old curmudgeon who will send private warning notes to people who use offensive or abusive language, or engage in ad hominem attacks. These are obviously subjective calls, and he promises to be as fair as possible but has gone on record as "not wantin' to put up with no real bad stuff." He uses baseball rules: three strikes and you're out.
