I have participated in several email reflectors. The styles of  
"moderation" cover a very wide range. Some moderators not only restrict 
the subject matter to a very narrow field, but they also do not post 
responses from any other than their own personal favorite experts. An 
email reflector with that type of moderation is very non-inclusive, and 
for most of us non-participatory. Most "participants" are really only 
allowed to be spectators. This Ten-Tec reflector may be the opposite end 
of the spectrum, allowing the subject matter to diverge far from just 
Ten-Tec equipment, and allowing responses from anyone, regardless of 
their credentials or personal rapport with the moderator. Having 
experienced both extremes, I find the way the Ten-Tec reflector is 
moderated to the more desirable option.

Sometimes off topic threads do seem to go on forever, and I wonder if my 
"DELETE" key is going to fail from fatigue. I use an email program that 
allows me to make filters. If I really get tired of a thread, I can make 
a filter (for the subject wording for instance) that will send all 
emails matching that criteria to a junk folder, or directly delete them.

I would like to thank the moderator of this reflector for allowing a 
wide variety of subjects to be discussed here.
