Re: Proposed changes to the AUP.
Sure - why not; I have a letter in a safety deposit box in case of helicopters (of any color). I virtually never post and think (in retrospect) that a couple of my posting were probably in violation of the AUP. It does seem that a number of recent threads have wandered off topic (under any definition of the word). That said, I like the content of this list, both on and off topic because I have learned so much from it. If the AUP stays the way it is (which is fine with me), why not just not post individual messages that make personal attacks or are in violation in some manner, and just kill a thread when it wanders 'too' far off topic.
