A moderator could free the list of posts that many of those closest to
the sumo world have objected to (personal attacks), those which have
caused them to stay away from the mailing list, while still allowing
for on topic debates.
It is always up to the individual subscriber to decide what to read
and what to dispose of, or whose posts to automatically delete (yours
truly must fall into the latter category with some people...). I
suggest that we try to accomodate the list so that we can reattract
those individuals who used to selflessly provide us with dohyo-side
seats, and moderation is one such suggestion.
