    You really aren't required to answer SLUG bug reports, you know. 8^)
    It's nice that you and Barry volunteer your time to help out the rest
    of us, but you shouldn't feel that you have to respond to every request
    for help.

Respond, nothing, I'm talking about even *READING*.  I respond to
only a minute fraction; even Barmar responds to only a minute fraction.
I haven't asked him, but frankly, I find it hard to imagine that Barmar
or *ANYBODY* not paid to do exactly that would read all of the bug mail
that that would be sent to SLUG if they *ALL* went to SLUG.

If everybody sent all of their bugs to the SLUG mailing list, I would
remove myself and respond to *NONE* of them.  I would also regret losing
this source of information.  Maybe then some of us could go start a
NON-BUG-SLUG list somewhere, but I know I couldn't handle the maintenance
of such a list.
