There were extensive discussions over the issues and possible resolutions of
issues leading up the AUP. As part of the process of looking at
alternatives, I made the point that inevitably an alternate venue would
appear for those who are not comfortable with a degree of moderation. (I
called it, mostly tongue-cheek, AMSAT-BS.) There are several Yahoo groups
which formed this way. Thanks for stepping up and doing this for those who

I have been the member of many E-Mail groups like this that start to
censor, and it does have it's place. But then sometime a fully
uncensored place is also needed to discuss things where stepping on
someones toes you don't have to worry about being threatened about being
removed from the list. So many of these other groups made a secondary
list where these non PC or not approved discussions can take place.
I just made one for here is anyone feels like they want or need to use it.
