I'm so glad you included that "in my view", because, you see, *I* have
really been enjoying Yangkun's posts, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
I've been reading every word. I've found his exchanges with Geege really
interesting, and personally am glad they've been FoRKed. If you're not
enjoying them, killfile him, or just hit delete. Then you and Joebar and JB
can go out and have a beer together and discuss how boring things have
gotten lately on FoRK, and all will be right with the world. Or start FoKS,
and don't invite people who find finance and politics interesting topics.
Fortunately, you're still not the arbiter of all things FoRKable.
