A reply to myself, and nobody in general:

It would seem that I generated even more mail on this subject  - - for 
that, I am sorry.

My mail was not designed to be a threat or ultimatum - - just a simple 
statement of fact.

Yes, there is technology which can help manage inboxes, just as I can 
offer earplugs to those who find me standing in the corner of their 
hackerspace shouting "I have the hots for RMS" on a megaphone.

I find this hackerspaces.org collective to be amusing - - - taking a step 
back, we are really just a bunch of 'artists collectives', only more 
bit twiddling and less canvas covering.  What brings us together is the 
internet- this website and mailing list.

We all have different goals.  The problems we face in each of our spaces 
are likely very similar - - social problems, finances, marketing, internal 
politics, etc.

It is my general belief that we should share tribal knowledge about topics 
which we have in common.

A topic which I would love to raise at some point in the near future - - 
'children in hackerspaces'.

Respectfully yours,
