Scope of this group

    From:     miller@ACORN.CS.ROCHESTER.EDU (Brad Miller)

    I'd like to propose that this mailing list be limited to discussions of
    Symbolics symbolic language products and supporting hardware and issues
    relating to them; other symbolics product (i.e. Unix machines made by that
    other vendor) may have their own mailing list?

You may work in a sheltered world, completely devoid of non-Symbolics
hardware.  However, many of us must work in heterogenous environments,
both in software and hardware.  I find it quite useful to hear comments
and questions regarding problems that arise when trying to work in such

    I'm not trying to be a snob, I just don't want to see this list filled with
    a lot of UN*X crap. (I put an asterick in the dirty word)

Considering the number of Unix machines out there, we're bound to see a
lot of what you call "Unix cr*p."  If you don't want to see these msgs,
then I suggest you close your eyes.

    BTW: I'm disappointed.
